Various authors snipped under either the category "who?" or "don't

> Jane Austen
> A.A. Milne
> J.R.R.Tolkien

All three significant in my life, and on my bookshelf now.

> Stephen King

Ew, yuck, no thanks.

> Robert Frost


> Louisa May Alcott

Very good, IMHO, on bookshelves.

> William Shakespeare

Yes, a must have

> Laura Ingalls Wilder

Oh, yes - learned to read on that series.  Bought a set for my kids.

> Mark Twain

Good, need to read more of his stuff.

> Edgar Allan Poe

Some good, some disturbed.

> Dr. Seuss

As a mother of a small child, let me just TWITCH at this one.

> Emily Dickinson

Can't think of her without thinking of the comment that all her stuff
can be sung to The Yellow Rose of Texas...

In general, library expansions are Good Things.
