Jane Austen. She did not write a lot, and I've watched all the movies, so what excuse do I have? So I have a lazy streak. The effort is worth it in this case.

Rosamunde Pilcher is another author I feel is worth reading all. And Maeve Binchy. I know this is totally subjective.

Richard Preston, Michael Crichton, and Sarah Dessen, just to name a few. I recently learned that Crichton wrote under pseudonyms, so I have even more to read-yay!

Tigabelman, VC Andrews rocks. I will not sit here and deny that.

I like to collect entire authors' works, but reading them is a challenge for me. I have "series" issues, wherein I can't progress past a certain point without losing my focus. For example, I made it halfway through the delightful Heartland series by Lauren Brooke, but then I just got stuck, and a few years later I still can't get unbudged. (In my defense, there are about twenty books involved. So... it's the author's fault for writing so many books, darn it! Bad author.) :roll:

I plan to read all Shakespeare's works. I found a version that really speaks to me, and makes it easy to understand.

There are a few, but I think my biggest accomplishment was Atwood, though I haven't read all of her poetry (I'm just more of a fiction person). I read The Handmaid's Tale and got hooked, ended up taking a seminar where we read one of her books every week, and then read the rest from there. Not into some of them, to be honest, but Surfacing and Cat's Eye were both just incredible.
