Top Ten Tuesday (1)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of our bloggers answers. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND sign Mister Linky at the bottom to share with us and all those who are participating. If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Don't worry if you can't come up with ten every time...just post what you can!

  1. I never had a chance to finish looking at all the lists last night because I had to go to a meeting and it ended up being the meeting that would never end. Ha. I like your list. I should have added Khaled Hosseini, too. As I was driving home from said meeting I thought that I should have put Harper Lee on my list since I think that To Kill a Mockingbird is a perfect book. However, I based my list on body of work and I forced myself to pick authors that I have read three or more of their books.
