Lauren Leto Stereotypes Readers/Authors

I like this.  HT Instapundit – I hadn’t heard of Lauren Leto and her blog before, but I found this enjoyable:

Stereotyping People by Their Favorite Author

(by the way – I respect every author on here, kind of)

J.D. Salinger

Kids who don’t fit in (duh).

Stephenie Meyer

People who type like this: OMG. Mah fAvvv <3 <3.

J.K. Rowling

Smart geeks.

Ms. Leto provides many, many examples more.  I’m mildly distressed at how many of the contemporary authors I had not heard of before, but then I don’t read much current fiction.

But there Is A Problem With This List, and the fact that I note it will not surprise regular readers of this blog.  It is missing a certain author, one of Great(est) Importance.  So, dear VC readers, in the spirit of the above – consult the blog for all the rest of the sampled authors, and then tell me how you fill in the Missing Author … drumroll, Stendhal.
