53 lästa, över hälften alltså. Noterar att det är de äldre som toppar, därför har jag flest där eftersom jag inte är så flitig deckarläsare längre. Saknar Michael Chabon, Abigail Padget, och några till. Men man kan inte hålla med om allt, och flera av dem Lotta Olsson skriver om blir jag nyfiken på. Jag rekommenderar att du klickar på länken däruppe och läser vad hon skrivit.

Det är Banned books week i USA 21–29 september, och en lista på 33 böcker cirkulerar runt just nu. HÄR. Jag har räknat ut att jag läst 13 av dem. Däribland Älskade av Toni Morrison, Till vildingarnas land av Maurice Sendak, Tjänarinnans berättelse av Margaret Atwood, Den absolut sanna berättelsen om mitt liv som halvtidsindian av Sherman Alexie och Moment 22 av Joseph Heller. Plus att ett par stycken ingick i min litteraturvetenskapliga kurs i slutet av 1980-talet, däribland Flugornas herre av William Goldoing.

1001 böcker att läsa innan man dör. Jag finner den hos Enligt O, men det verkar vara en utmaning som cirkulerar hos bland andra Mad bibliophile, och som går ut på att man ska läsa en procent av dessa 1001 böcker i år. Den som gjort den verkar närmast besatt av Ian McEwan. Men eftersom jag hittade flera fina favoriter på listan så kan jag inte låta bli att göra den. (Dessutom är detta dag ett av mitt rökstopp, och då framstår fyra timmars pyssslande med länkar etc som ett bra sätt att tänka på annat.)

Jag gör som vanligt; fetar de jag läst och om jag läst nåt annat av författaren fetar jag bara namnet. Flera författare har flera böcker på listan. Jag får det till att jag läst cirka 195 av böckerna, och att 1810-talet var ett starkt decennium för mig. Om jag läst boken sen jag började blogga har jag länkat. Några gånger har jag länkat till andra passande inlägg.

Det cirkulerar listor på kvinnliga favoritförfattare här och där i bloggosfären just nu (= då för flera månader sen när jag började på detta inlägg. Nu julstädar jag.) Jag tror att ursprunget är Emma på Uppbokad, som ledsnade på listan Världsbiblioteket som sägs innehålla världens 100 bästa böcker.
Två saker är slående med de där 100: dels att det är väldigt många män, dels att det är väldigt många svenskar (22 böcker av 100). Kanske kunde man ha döpt listan till nåt annat än Världsbiblioteket. 😉
Lyran tog sen Emmas idé vidare och har listat sina 100 kvinnliga författare, och jag ser runtomkring att många följer upp och gör sina egna listor.
Jag tänkte göra samma sak. (och gjorde det också här.) Men jag läser ju nästan bara kvinnliga författare, i min bokhylla är männen i minoritet. Så jag tänkte ge det manliga könet en liten boost istället.

Manliga författare väl värda att läsa:
Sherman Alexie
W Somerset Maugham
Michael Chabon
J R Moehringer
Tash Aw
Jeffrey Eugenides
Dennis Lehane
F Scott Fitzgerald
Kristian Lundberg
Robert Graves
Richard Yates (bilden, från 1960)
George Orwell — förlåt att jag glömde, men han ska förstås vara med
