Booking Through Thursday

Almost everyone can name at least one author that you would love just ONE more book from. Either because they’re dead, not being published any more, not writing more, not producing new work for whatever reason . . . or they’ve aged and aren’t writing to their old standards any more . . . For whatever reason, there just hasn’t been anything new (or worth reading) of theirs and isn’t likely to be.

If you could have just ONE more book from an author you love . . . a book that would be as good any of their best (while we’re dreaming) . . . something that would round out a series, or finish their last work, or just be something NEW . . . Who would the author be, and why? Jane Austen? Shakespeare? Laurie Colwin? Kurt Vonnegut?

First of all - how slack! Not posting for a whole week! And still managing to be two days late with BTT!!! It's not like I don't have a whole heap of posts in draft either! Maybe I will try and finish a couple off tomorrow! No real reason for no posts, although I did blow out a candle on a cake this week! Yep, another year older.

In answer to the question, I nominate Margaret Mitchell. I would love to have seen what else she could come up with and to see if it would rival Gone With the Wind! There are of course others, like Anya Seton and Jean Plaidy, but I know that others have nominated them, so I will go with this one!


  1. Happy birthday, Marg!!

    Did Margaret Mitchell only ever write GwtW? Wow, I never realized. I would say Mary Stewart as my author I'd like another book out of. But she's like 90+ so that's definitely not going to happen. :(

  2. I don't think she ever finished anything else, because she was killed in an accident not long after the film least I think that is what happened!

  3. There's something called Lost Laysen which I dont think is a novel

  4. Happy Birthday!

    Hmmm.... difficult. I must think about this longer!

  5. My author(s) who I would love to see write just one more - Tom and Sharon Curtis - and it has to be Cat's story.

  6. Easy! It would have to be Jane Austen. I'm so hooked, that I have even read much of the fan fiction out there. Some of it is so good, that the works are now published.

    I'm a Darcy girl all the way!

  7. Normally I would play on my blog for BTT, but I didn't this week.

    But I just want to say Happy Birthday and welcome back!

  8. I thought of this too!! I was trying to imagine Rhett and Scarlet later....and done by Margaret Mitchell. (Not like that lousy book, Scarlet!
