I've always had an unofficial list of novels/authors I want to read, it grows larger all the time even though I read a lot.

So how about anyone else?

Not really a list, official or otherwise, but does a pile of books waiting to be read count?

There are books I hear about, or read reviews of, that sound interesting, and sometimes I note the titles down, and try and find the book to see if it really lives up to the promise.

There is a thread of that nature, however that's not exactly the question asked here...

Every single James Patterson Novel, the only problem is he keeps popping them out! I cant keep up!

A former member of this site gave me a list of books she thought I would enjoy. I'm about half way through it.

Issac Asimov is the next author on my list of books to read. However I need other things to slow down a bit so I can read them.

I saved a reading list from a creative writing course that was based online, the Tutor posted a long list of popular books. I must find it later and post it up for everyone icon_smile I love re-taking English Literature courses every few years, so I can read 10 new books in the course geek geek My fave book I read on last years EL course was The Color Purple brilliant!

This is a really good idea. If only I had the time -- (I need to take control of my awake hours again... I think I´m going to start an internal revolution soon lol)

I have a long reading list of stories I want to read here on lush. Unfortunatly my work schedule does not allow me to fully engage is reducing its size!! Furthermore, it seems to grow exponentially lol.

Issac Asimov, was mentioned. As a sci-fi fan I actually haven't read his work yet :(
Ray Bradbury
Robert E. Howard (reading)

Surprisingly, I actually don't have lists of authors, but rather lists of books. Have a long list of both classic novels and more contemporary work. As well, I have a list of other important works but aren't novels.

A pile of books for me too. Thing is, I don't start a series if I don't have the complete collection yet.

I usually bring one or two books with me when I travel, or whenever I know I'll be doing a lot of waiting. At present, I have these:

CS Lewis
Out of the Silent Planet - started
Perelandra
That Hideous Strength

Henry Lincoln etal
Holy Blood Holy Grail - halfway done

John Irving
158-Pound Marriage - some chapters
Hotel New Hampshire

Isaac Asimov
Nemesis

Ursula Le Guin (incomplete)
Wizard of Earthsea
The Farthest Shore

The reading list is always there.. seems to keep getting longer and longer.. but I do keep chipping away at it.

Yes. I keep an excel spreadsheet of books read, reading now, and those I want to read. It's about to hit 1000... I have too little time...
