Authors: Z-A

I am constantly on the lookout for books to read. Sometimes I read whatever the ‘hot’ new book is at the time. More often than not, however, those books are already checked out of the library when I go looking for them. How then to find something to read? I’ve gotten recommendations from friends and family; I’ve gotten recommendations from strangers; I’ve judged books by their covers; and I’ve randomly pulled books from the shelves.

This time I’m going to be a bit more systematic. I’ve decided to read books alphabetically based on the author’s last name. I booked it up towards the “A” section at the Beverly Library. Upon finding it roped off (due to repairs?) I decided that fate wanted me to start at “Z”.

Hopefully this little project will expose me to new authors, genres and stories. I’ve got 26 chances to find something new to love.

Stay tuned for the next installment of Z-A. Same Bat time, same Bat channel.

    Does this mean that when you finish fiction authors you’ll go backwards through the Dewey Decimal system? Then the question becomes does the Beverly Library put their biographies at the end of the numbers or in the 920’s? Maybe they use Library of Congress cataloging and this whole comment is irrelevent?

    Aye, there’s the rub! I’ve given this some thought; since I usually enjoy alternating fiction and non fiction. Perhaps I’ll still alternate, but make sure that the non fiction author still falls alphabetically…
