Thursday Thirteen #4


Thirteen Authors Sparkyreads faithfully


And One mention of a book they are known for, enjoy...

1.Mike Lupica-Amazon.com: Summer of '98. Sports books with humor.

2.Tony Kornheiser-Amazon.com: I'm Back for More Cash: A Tony Kornheiser Collection (Because You Can't Take Two Hundred Newspapers into the Bathroom). A editorialist and sports writer who now calls games on Monday Night football. Some laugh until you cry articles, and its not all about sports

3.Laurell K Hamilton-Amazon.com: Danse Macabre (Anita Blake Vampire Hunter)Books about Vampires and Fairies with a certain twisted view.

4.Kim Harrison-Amazon.com: The Good, the Bad, and the Undead. Books about witches and casting out spirits, yet almost like a mystery murder book as well.

6.David Maraniss-Amazon.com: When Pride Still Mattered. The biographer of America

7.Al Franken-Amazon.com: Rush Limbaugh Is a Big Fat Idiot. Originally, he was just very funny, now he has become funny and truthful.

8.Darby Conley-Amazon.com: Say Cheesy: A Get Fuzzy Collection, Vol. 5. Cats in a Cartoon, enough said

9.Shakespeare-Ok, I didnt voluntarily read most of his works, but they werent that bad, even if force for educational purposes.

10.Michael Moore-Amazon.com: Stupid White Men: ...And Other Sorry Excuses for the State of the Nation!/a>. A little bit radical, but he does get a discussion going.

11.Patricia Cornwell-
Amazon.com: Body of Evidence. I first started reading them because she located her books around places my parents used to live, then they just became creepy good.

12.Jane Green-Amazon.com: To Have and To Hold: A NovelThe first chick lit author that i really liked.

13.Other authors that i should be reading more of:Sarah Vowell, Kristin Gore, Zoey Dean, Bill Maher, Jon Stewart, Anne Rice.

Carmen said...

Momish said...

I love to read too, but unfortunately, there never seems to be the free time. I envy you and your list!

I think you have a wonderful list of authors. Thanks for sharing them with us. I might try to read a book each from the authors you mentioned.

Happy Thursday!

Great list..IM always looking for good books

Oooh...I love Kim Harrison! I hoarde her books and save them to read when I need something really good.

I've only read one LKH; it was good, but I try not to read too many vampire books for fear they'll "creep" into my own work.

Great blog! I'll be back.

Love Al Franken. Used to love Cornwell--but you know, then she killed off Benton and then he wasn't really dead and well it got weird...

Jenny Ryan said...

I keep meaning to read some Jane Green.

Thanks for the book recs-I always love discovering new authors :)

I love Kim Harrison's books, but oddly can't get into Laurell Hamilton's work. :) Thanks for stopping by my T13 a couple weeks ago. My new one's up!

I like Laura Hamilton too. I'm a vampire junky :)

Happy TT

I LOVE Darby Conley! Not only did he grow up in my orignal neck-of-the-woods, but "Get Fuzzy" is my favorite comic strip. I've known both a "Bucky" and a "Satchel." ;)

And I was a fan of Patricia Cornwell's earlier Kay Scarpetta books, but about halfway through the series, I thought she lost her head. *g*

Thanks for visiting my TT!

Hi, i was looking over your blog and didn't
quite find what I was looking for. I'm looking for
different ways to earn money... I did find this though...
a place where you can make some nice extra cash secret shopping.
I made over $900 last month having fun!
make extra money

I'm so behind in my reading, maybe I'm spending too much time on the computer?

Nancy said...

How come no Stephen King? I like LKH's Fae books better than Anita. Kim Harrison's books make me laugh.

We like a lot of the same stuff. Except sports, ick!
