All right, then, go ahead and give it to us, Ky!!!!!!!


message 4: by Lori (new)

Lori Look it in author form: J.K. Rowling is a book pimp.


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Hmmm. Would "Jacks of All Trades" do as well? (See http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/60... ...)


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) That said, is it strictly the English form of the name, or would "Jean," "Johann(es)," "Juan," "Gianni" and the like be welcome, too?


Themis-Athena (Lioness at Large) Cool, thanks! :)


message 8: by Adam (new)

1. John Fante – Dreams from Bunker Hill
2. John Steinbeck – Of Mice and Men

4. John Maxwell (J.M.) Coetzee – Disgrace
5. John Irving – The Cider House Rules
6. John Wyndham – The Day of the Triffids
7. Jonathan Franzen – The Corrections
8. John Fowles – The Collector

10. John le Carre – The Constant Gardener

Julie Black Like Me is nonfiction/memoir not a novel. There actually multiple memoirs on the list.


message 10: by BookLovingLady (last edited Oct 12, 2019 08:32AM) (new)

BookLovingLady I stuck to novels/novellas myself. Didn't add any poetry, short stories, memoirs, plays, non-fiction, and so on.
