Thursday 13 - more authors!

Posted: Thursday, June 28, 2007 by Travis Cody in

Sorry I didn't make my rounds tonight. I'll catch up in the next few days. I'm having a rough week at work. I won't go into the boring details, but it's making me tired and cranky.

I did get a cool surprise yesterday with a Rockin' Boy Blogger badge courtesy of Katherine over at Wading Through My Stream of Consciousness.

I'll have a post for this tomorrow, along with some fellow rockin' fellas.

I know why you're here today though. You're looking to continue the tour through my library, aren't ya? Well, who am I to disappoint?

If you missed any of the previous lists, you can check them out here.

So here are the next 13 authors in the stacks:

1. Raymond E. Feist - The Riftwar Saga, Daughter of Empire, Prince of the Blood, The Serpent War Saga, The Riftwar Legacy
2. Edna Ferber - Cimaron
3. F. Scott Fitzgerald - Tender is the Night
4. Thomas Flanagan - The End of the Hunt
5. Ian Fleming - More Gilt-Edged Bonds
6. Kenneth C. Flint - Legends Reborn
7. Frederick Forsythe - The Odessa File, The Negotiator
8. John Fowles - The Collector
9. Ernest K. Gann - The High and the Mighty
10. John Gardner - The Liquidator

12. Rumer Godden - Kingfishers Catch Fire
13. Sue Grafton - A is for Alibi, B is for Burglar, C is for Corpse, K is for Killer, N is for Noose, O is for Outlaw

Here's a few words about So You Think You Can Dance...wonderful, excellent, fun, great talent, and surprising. Reviews are coming soon. Pam and I have some favorites we think can win, but here's a video of the pair we get such a kick out of right now. He's a break dancer with no formal training and she's only been dancing for four years. This is just a wonderful dance.


  1. Oohh! Fowles and Fitzgerald are two of my all time favorites! Try the Magus by Fowles too =)

  1. Congratulations on the rocking boy blogger award. Very smart looking blue button!

  1. THAT is one of my all-time favorite Pretenders tunes. Every time I hear it I get chills and then I weep.

    Congrats, you rockin' boy! You deserve it, Trav.

  1. Gail says:

    That's my Rockin Boy!!

    Congrats dearie

  1. julie says:

    Yup! You are a rocker boy alright! Congratulations sweetie!

    I could just sit and watch those dance clips all day long! And youtube is so cool grouping up similar clips for my viewing pleasure!

  1. I like to see what people are reading. I love summer. Being off work, I can read like a madman without a soul. Right now I have begun "The First Man of Rome" by Colleen McCollough. I'm going through a Rome thing, I guess.

  1. Ohhhhhhhhhh... I love the Rockin Boy Blogger badge.... Congratulations!!!



  1. Great list, Trav.

    So you think you can dance rocks, and so do you! Congrats on the Rockin' boy honor. I can't wait to see who you pick.

  1. Angell says:

    Congrats on the Rockin' Boy Award. :D

    Great titles and authors - I've jotted a few down for future materials.

    Great tune to dance to - what did the judges have to say about them? To me, there didn't seem to be an abundance of originality, although they had some great moves, and chemistry.

    Congrats on your Rocking Boy award!
    And you know, I don't think I ever read "Tender is the night" by Fitzgerald. I'll have to check that one out!

  1. Travis says:

    Starr: It's been ages since I read either of those books.

    Terra: Thanks!

    Songbird: I love that song too.

    Gail: **grin**

    Julie: I love that youtube is grouping them all like that.

    Stewart: While I was shelving the books I realized how many I haven't read, or want to read again. So many books, so little time.

    Dix: Thank you my darlin!

    CWM: I got my picks all ready, just need to write my post.

  1. Travis says:

    Angell: The judges really liked them. They got high praise. And their Rumba last night was also very good.

    Queenie: Glad you stopped by!

    Comedy: Thanks!

    Wolfbaby: I think my favorite on this particular list is Feist.

    Mo: I haven't read "Tender" in years.

  1. Hi Travis. Well, I didn't get a T13 up today, though I thought about it last night. Maybe I can get it done next week.

    I, like you, have lots of good books around here.

    I've tagged you for a meme. Hope you don't mind. Check it out on my blog and see what it's about.

    Have a great day.

    Imma (Alice)
