Write Right Gets Lost in the Library

Write Right gets lost in the library.Write Right has gotten lost in the library. To find her way, she will have to meet eleven, possibly twelve, characters from literature. She knows some of the characters she will meet, including some found in the works of C.S. Lewis and Shakespeare, but she could meet a few more. Which literary characters do you think she should meet? Share them in a comment.

  1. Just wrote a book review about Socialized! on Monday. Run and get it IF you’re interested in what being a social business is all about. Great read by the Forbes columnist, Mark Fidelman.

  2. I am reading a lot of Indian classical authors these days. Currently, I am trying to read works of Mulk Raj Anand.

  3. How about… THe original Foundation trilogy by Isaac Asimov.

  4. I read “Gods Without Men” by Hari Kunzru this past summer. I have to admit this isn’t my usual style, and it took a few chapters to get into. But once I did, I was hooked. If you read the reviews don’t let the science fiction steer you away – or the religious-sounding title. It’s a fusion of technology, history, relationships, and the question of “what is real?” in our new media landscape. ok, and maybe there’s a little sci-fi tossed in 🙂 Highly recommend!

    • itsjessicann Another interesting choice. I think my Goodreads reading list is being taken over by sci-fi, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. 🙂
      Are there any literary characters you’d like Write Right to meet in a comic?

  5. An Equal Music, by Vikram Seth is one of my favorite books of all time.  Kim, by Rudyard Kipling is also awesome.

  6. As far as fiction goes, I’m getting ready to launch into Pattern Recognition by William Gibson (The Neuromancer) and then the Game of Thrones books. As for business books, I’ve got Start with Why by Simon Sinek, Do the Work by Steven Pressfield, and now The Millenial CEO by Daniel Newman on my list. I just finished reading some books on moral psychology that were pretty cool: The Righteous Mind by Jonathan Haidt and My Brain Made Me Do It by Eliezer Sternberg. I could go on and on. There is no end to the suggestions I have for Write Right.

    • douglaserice Now that’s a list! I have the Game of Thrones on my reading list, too, as well as Pressfield. I was going to start with The War of Art. 
      If I illustrate the Game of Thrones…is there a dwarf character? Maybe Write Right can meet a dwarf. I think I got lost in my own context as swoodruff would say. Write Right, the cartoon character, would like to meet some literary characters.

    • douglaserice Haidt’s book was really thought-provoking, no? I thoroughly enjoyed it!

      • SteveWoodruff douglaserice It was absolutely AMAZING. It was refreshing to see someone take such an even-handed approach to such morally complexly issues and seek to understand arguments rather than to win then.

  7. Do you know young Mr. Ender Wiggan? Or Nell from The Diamond Age?
