The people over at Book Riot put out a book Start Here Vol. 1, and it helps you decide where to start reading an author that you haven't managed to get around to like Margret Atwood and Jane Austen. (Full list on the page on Amazon).
Now, they are writing the sequel and they are trying to get funding for the project on Kickstarter. Funding ends soon and they aren't quite there yet. So, please check out the page and donate if you think it sounds awesome. Because it is. $5 donation gets you an ebook copy delivered so its really more like pre-ordering!
