Dorothy Parker, Thorne Smith (if you haven't read anything of his you are missing incredibly funny wordplay and some of the most amusing skewed views of human nature you'll ever read - the man was a genius! Read "Turnabout" and "The Stray Lamb" for starters.), P.G. Wodehouse, and Tolkien are my favorites - this week.
Piers Anthony, Stephen King, Isaac Asimov, Tom Clancy... lots more. I used to read about 10-15 books a week. Forget homework, Isaac Asimov was far more engaging than any science homework I ever had. Books are badass.
My best friend went to a Science Fiction writer's conference in New York City in the early 70s. He said when the conference opened, Assimov would start the day with a full bottle of Southern Comfort and an empty legal pad. At day's end, the bottle would be nearly empty and the legal pad full.
