Linzy Mihailov Dobraye utro! Yzumitelno!!!!!


message 2: by Linzy (new)

Linzy Mihailov Dr. Brown's book is good


message 3: by Terri (new)

Terri Barefoot I met Doc Brown in Vancouver. He inspired me.


message 4: by Adela (new)

Adela Bezemer-Cleverley I don't know any of those authors. I would vote J R R Tolkien, again.


message 5: by Johnnie (new)

Johnnie Sizemore My heart feels warm when reading your page. It's like when I view a sunset or a baby giggling makes me feel an uninterpretive view. Your work reminds me of the wonderfully inspiring book, I Heard God Laughing wrote by Daniel Ladinsky. You should check it out. Namaste, J


message 6: by Yasmin (new)

Yasmin What if your life was affected by none of those authors but a different one or ones?


Karma♥Bites ^.~ Stephanie Meyer?!? As in tweeny fandom? You jest...


message 8: by Katie (last edited Nov 27, 2012 07:00AM) (new)

Katie Hilton There were several authors on this list that have profoundly impacted my life. It was hard to choose just one.


message 9: by Yasmin (new)

Yasmin It is!


message 10: by Baisakhi (last edited May 26, 2013 03:11AM) (new)

Baisakhi Who wrote J.K.K. Tolkien?? :P


message 11: by Emily (new)

Emily Greaves It's between John and Stephen- although J.K. Rowling got me interested in reading. :)


message 12: by Zouagie (new)

Zouagie I'll be honest, Lemony Snicket. He doesn't sugar coat his words and is honest about it. Especially when it comes to life-learned lessons. I've learned about from it.


message 13: by Indigo (last edited Aug 22, 2013 12:15AM) (new)

Indigo Why do you make me chooooose?! TT^TT

Anne McCaffery is awesome when I can read and understand the books when young and yet go back when older and read and understand the higher level words better and the things hinted at that I missed when younger.

J.K. Rowling got me started on actual written books and not just picture books so she is AWESOME. She also made me hungry for books of wizards and magic and dragons! >.
And Tamora Peirce is someone I look up to a lot! o.o I love pretty much ALL her books and read all I could get my hands on, and she so inspired me in the different kinds of magics out there like craft magic or wild magic! And her awesome strong heroines and female characters are a true inspiration! xD

And Sir Arthur Conan Doyle is AWESOME with his Sherlock Holmes stories! Awesome protagonist and I love how he solves mysteries!


message 14: by Melissa (new)

Melissa  Joy Maria V. Snyder all the way!


message 15: by Arlen (new)

Arlen Thought I'd be able to vote for more than one, so please don't think my choice reflects the most profound choices from the list. Thanks.


message 16: by Hapithoughts (new)

Hapithoughts always a fan of Jane Austen:D
