10 Favorite Authors With Books I Still Haven't Read

I tweaked this one's title a bit, because so many of my fave authors are the very prolific kind. I didn't finish this one in time to link it up, but this was the original post.

I know there are some others I liked in elementary/middle school with really long back catalogues (Jim Kjelgaard! Jean Craighead George and/or Mr. George!), but it has been so long since I read any of them that even the ones I have read, I've largely forgotten. So maybe there will be a Part II in the future, but for now...
The Griffin & Sabine series (I own it -- except for the newly-released 7th one -- and have gotten partway through book one a few times, but ultimately I always get too overwhelmed by how much I love the art design to finish.)

Spoils of a proper library sale!

1) It's Wednesday, and I'm currenty still on top of work! Only 1/3 of the work assigned today is left for tomorrow, and I have gone as far as I can go until people reply to me (which has been true since 5pm, so I got to do the next thing guilt free).

2) Last year it was terrible, but this time...WOW. Even though I didn't get there until 6.5 hours post-opening, the sale was definitely bigger than last time (I spent 75 minutes cruising around), and they were practically giving books away. Seriously. Nothing was more expensive than $1. Paperbacks/YA novels and kids' books were progressively cheaper by half. I ended up buying to my heart's reasonable content, and here is what I ended up with.

Whew! That took longer than I thought it would. I am pretty tired from only having gotten 4-6 hours of sleep (the last two interrupted by extended snooze buttons) after a similar amount last night, so I am signing off to retire to bed. Amid a nest of approximately 7 different books, because I am bone-weary but not sleepy-weary yet, and I have enough energy to read but still don't know which one I wanna buckle down and start.
