Barnes & Noble

I have always wanted to work at Barnes & Noble. When I was in high school, my mother had a part time job there and she said during the interview process they ask you for your ten favorite authors or ten you would like to have dinner with or whatever. Here is my list. I have decided to write it out and carry it with me at all times, just in case they see me browsing and I get an impromptu interview, because they know I would be the best addition.

Jeffrey Brown
Jodi Piccoult
Al Franken
Charles Bukowski
David Sedaris
J.K. Rowling
Francesca Lia Block
Audrey Niffenegger
Laurie Notaro
Shel Silverstein

Alternates: Noam Chomsky, Christopher Pike, Ann M. Martin, V.C. Andrews.

Actually, I forgot it's supposed to be people you'd have dinner with or whatever; I was just thinking who I liked the most.
PS I was at Samurai when Kochalka and Thompson were there, even got a minicomic signed.
