I'll agree with most of that but I have swap Jane Austen for Oscar Wilde. And now I'm off to find out about James Baldwin because I've never heard of him. Ooh I just remembered HG Wells, Jules Verne, Robert Heinlein I could go on all night
Stephen King James Patterson (easy read but entertaining) David Brin Judy Blume (I know I read her when I was younger but she is awesome, you have to admit....remember, Dear God, It's me Margaret, totally related to that book and many others) Many others but I will start with these...oh, J.R.

Anthony Burgess (A Clockwork Orange) Jimmy Breslin (The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight is gutbustingly hilarious) and when I'm in a lighter mood, I enjoy Dick Francis because I grew up on horseracing.
