You can only read works from one author for the rest of your life, which author do you choose & why?
Me - if I am going to spend time listening to some egotistical rantings - they may as well be mine.
For me it's quite easy and it's the truth. It's going to be "The Bible" and why? It is undoubtedly the most fascinating, the most helpful, and the only book I have continuously gotten the most answers to all questions I ever had.
Bill James, because I learn a lot not only about baseball, but politics and history as well. His writing style is an influence on me.
'Meditations' by Marcus Aurelius, because I imagine, if I could only read one author for the rest of my life, I'd have been cast adrift from the life that I know, somehow. This would be so hard. I'd need the wisdom and guidance of Marcus Aurelia's incredible words. They are perfect.
The Holy Spirit. I swear I'd never wear out reading His works.
It would be tough to narrow it down, but I would take a very logical approach to it. Giving up the entire reading world would be difficult for me, so I would have to pick an author that follows these three criteria:
#1. He/She wrote long books.
#2. He/She wrote MANY long books
#3. He/She wrote MANY long books that keep my attention and interest.
Jodi Picoult is up there, so is Stephen King (although, I'd be worried that my life will be filled with too many nightmares if I picked him heh), Judith McNaught (okay, okay, it's cheesy romance, but there are a lot of them, and they are all rather thick), maybe Shakespeare (I know he can be difficult to decipher, but I could get used to the language, and his stories are fascinating; also, they offer a nice variety: you get anything from comedy to tragedy).
Kurt Vonnegut ––funny, moral, prolific, satirical, light, dense, entertaining as hell.
