July 11, Friday evening -- Reading Iaian M. Banks

In the Financial District

Reading The Player of the Games, by Iaian M. Banks. He recently read Consider Phlebas by the same author and wanted more.

His favorite books of all time--Tolkien's Lord of the Rings series.

What was the last author you read that inspired you to read two of their books in a row?

Julia Alverez (the time of the butterflies) led me to all her other books. Also B. Yoshimoto's Kitchen led me to all her other books. Same with Madeline L'Engle, her books for young people led me to her adult non fiction. Anzia Yezierska's Red Ribbon on a White horse led me to all her other work, too.

Haruki Murakami as well. Kafka on the Shore was my first Murakami novel, after which I read The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle and After Dark.
