Author Recommendation Poll

I have too many authors I want to read books by, and I want you people to help me prioritize them. All of the following are authors I've never read any books by, but have been planning to try reading books by. Some of them write fiction and some of them write nonfiction.

Do you personally highly recommend any of these authors? If so, check the boxes next to their names.
