Doesn't the choice of books tell more about the reader than about the book?

To a certain extent, yes.

I'm not a big reader of horror novels, so Stephen King's work doesn't make my list. The absence of SK is an indication of the reader.

Gator8387 was curious about the absence of Robert Jordan from my list. Again this is more an indication of the reader, not the book.

On the other hand,

I do read science-fiction. I've read many of Robert Heinlein; enjoyed some; hated others. None of them made my list. In this case, it is an indication of the book/author.

I've read many of Terry Pratchet's Discworld series, good light reads, but not enough to make the list. Ditto for Piers Anthony Xanth series, Blue Adept, Incarnations of Immortals series.
