@jnonfiction This is just off the top of my head...

5 Novels:
1) King Dork
2) The Cheese Monkeys
3) A Confederacy of Dunces
4) God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater
5) I Love You, Beth Cooper

3 Poets:
1) Yoni Wolf (technically a songwriter, but if you read his lyrics I think you'll agree his wordplay counts)
2) Carl Sandburg
3) e.e. cummings (too expected?)

Your turn.

@jnonfiction

Love the 4th novel, but it's been 9 years since I've read it! Have a copy of #1, but waiting till I maybe a whole month can be devoted to reading it.

Also, Geez — can I change my poets? LOVE Rilke! Of course I can only read the English translations.

And I enjoyed Wendell Berry's Jayber Crow and agricultural writing ... so maybe this means I should pick up some of his verse. Got a recommendation?

Cheers.
