Hello. I'm Athena of aquatique.net and I just joined the challenge. I realized I've read a few Nobel laureates, and a couple who I consider favourites. I'm looking forward to reading more from them. I am going to search my archives to see if I have any reviews of books for these authors, but there will be reviews from soon. Bold are authors I have read. Italics means I will probably read them this calendar year. (*) means I've read more than one of their work.
