Top 10 Bookish People I'd Like to Meet

Top Ten Tuesday
Top 10 Bookish People I'd Like to Meet
(Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)
This is an impossible list for a librarian.  Seriously.  It's actually quite ridiculous.  I would like to meet just about every author I read, ever blogger I follow, anyone, basically, who champions literacy.  In a world in which technology, and instantaneous gratification, is making it increasingly difficult for the written to have a fighting chance, anyone who believes in the power of words and the importance of imagination deserves a standing ovation.  So, to pick ten, here you go, my list of a few champions I would like to meet:

1)  The Ladies and Gent @ foreveryoungadult.com (with a drink in one hand and an awesome book in the other)

2) Libba Bray (without totally spazzing out...if possible)

3) Ernest Cline (Fanboys and Ready Player One? Um...yeah)

4) Anna @ Annareads.com (At an author event, mingling with the favorites)

5) Jasper Fforde (let's talk Thursday Next, Mr. Fforde)

6) C.S. Lewis (Genius #1)

7) Stephanie Perkins (former librarian, author of Etienne St. Clair, good times!)

8) J.R.R. Tolkien (Genius #2)

9) David Lee King @ DavidLeeKing.com (Combining technology and libraries in fun and amazing ways)

10) Derek Landy (am I too old to be a minion?)
