Sorry about dumbing this list down a bit, but I had to lighten the load a bit.

My choice is doubled on here because I didn't see it come up and chose it again.
All Suckers... Imagine not considering J.R.R.Tolkien.

Tolkien is a great choice too.
Most of these choices adorn the books on the shelves we place in our homes to demonstrate that we are well read.

If you want to know what sort of books a person really likes, reach under his pillow.

I'm sorry, but I am at a loss. Why the hell are Stephen King and JK Rowling even on this list. Their both horrible authors.
