Just found Michel Crichton in the "classics" section on Goodreads. Really, Goodreads? Even if I were guessing which authors from the late 20th century would eventually be classics, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have chosen Michael Crichton. Don't get me wrong, I love his books, and the hot docs on ER got me through many a lonely night, but in the classics section? Next to Picture of Dorian Gray, Heart of Darkness, and To Kill a Mockingbird? I don't think so! Forgive my bluntness, but it takes more than for the author to be deceased to make their works classic. If I wasn't addicted to your bookswap, we'd be on a break! Damn you, almost-free books!
