Author Comments: 

These are the books on my wish list. I've heard about most of these from the New York Times Book Review. If anyone has any comments, positive or negative, about these, I would greatly appreciate hearing from you.

I split the full list up by author so that the list wouldn't be so long and would be easier to read...

If anyone has used copies of these they'd like to sell, I'd be interested...

(Blushing shamefully.) I'm afriad to say the only one I've read is Fahrenheit 451 by Bradbury. I've read it three times, and although I don't remember my exact feelings towards it, I must have liked it if I read it that often.

Thanks, DaveNut. I've been looking for this one in used bookstores, but haven't found a copy I want to get yet. But, it's high on my list. :)
