Before you accuse me of plagiarism I'd like to credit News & Observer Book Review Editor J. Peder Zane for this blog idea: WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE BOOKS OF ALL TIME?
Peder has edited a very popular book titled The Top Ten. 125 authors including Stephen King, Tom Wolfe and other heavyweights shared with Peder their favorite books.
Persistence paid off for Peder. He didn’t give up after some of the top authors refused to respond to his survey. He used a little psychology informing the novelists that many of their prominent colleagues had already responded and they shouldn’t be left out.
