Booking through Thursday

Okay, this is my first Booking through Thursday ever, but I've enjoyed reading other bloggers' answers. I will try to get to it each week now. Wish me luck!

Booking Through Thursday

Almost everyone can name at least one author that you would love just ONE more book from. Either because they’re dead, not being published any more, not writing more, not producing new work for whatever reason . . . or they’ve aged and aren’t writing to their old standards any more . . . For whatever reason, there just hasn’t been anything new (or worth reading) of theirs and isn’t likely to be.

If you could have just ONE more book from an author you love . . . a book that would be as good any of their best (while we’re dreaming) . . . something that would round out a series, or finish their last work, or just be something NEW . . . Who would the author be, and why? Jane Austen? Shakespeare? Laurie Colwin? Kurt Vonnegut?

Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

Well, if I could really pick an author, I think I would pick J.K. Rowling. I can't imagine there won't be another Harry Potter book after the 7th (HP And The Deadly Hollows) is out in July :'-( Just one more Harry Potter to give me a bit more time to say good bye, more time to realize that it will be over... I'm really sad it will be over so soon and I find this hard to deal with ;-) At least I'll have the chance to read it twice - first in English, then in German!

  1. Oo! Wouldn't that be nice? I'm really looking forward to the last book, but sad just the same knowing that will be it.
