I am an introvert.
And THANK YOU, everyone, for all your thoughts, ideas, and support over the past couple months!
Independence is now complete.
MARCH 2009 UPDATE! My watchlist is FULL, and I am WAY BEHIND on my reading -- and I'm not going to be able to catch up any time soon, as I'm tied up with writing at the moment. And so, my HUGE APOLOGIES to everyone, but I CANNOT TAKE ANY NEW READ REQUESTS right now, nor until I've acquitted myself better with the manuscripts in my queue; books on my watchlist have already waited longer than a plausible human lifespan, and I can't make the situation any worse!

I don't even know where to begin with this! I might have to stick more with favorite published authors than books (in no particular order)...
Dostoyevsky. Charlotte Bronte. Dashiell Hammett. Voltaire. Gordon Woods. Philip K. Dick. Yukio Mishima. Neal Stephenson. Patrick O'Brian. Thomas Hardy. Victor Hugo. Charles Dickens. Gene Wolfe. J. G. Ballard. Kurt Vonnegut. Mark Twain. Patricia Highsmith. Franz Kafka. Goethe. Esther Forbes. Jack Black (not the ACTOR! the guy who wrote "You Can't Win"). And many, many more, only I'd better stop at SOME point!
