I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads & Instagram connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Tuesday Thingers - 26 August 2008
Today's topic: LibraryThing authors. Who are your LibraryThing authors? What books of theirs do you have? Do you ever comment on an author's LT page? Have you received any comments from an author on your LT account?
My LT authors are Meg Waite Clayton (author of The Wednesday Sisters and The Language of Light), James Dashner (author of The 13th Reality series), J.F. Englert (author of A Dog About Town and A Dog Among Diplomats), Shawn Granger (author of Innocent, Volume 1), Penelope Przekop (author of Aberrations) and J. Scott Savage (author of Farworld: Water Keep). I have all the books listed above that they have written and I've read them all except The Language of Light, which I just got in the mail not too long ago.
I have commented on several of these author's LT pages, and I have received comments back. I've actually had the great pleasure to meet Meg Waite Clayton in person, and J.F. Englert was gracious enough to supply several copies of both of his books to give away on my blog in addition to doing a short Q&A with me. James Dashner has contributed to several discussions on LT about his books, and Penelope Przekop and I have had a couple of conversations via Facebook. I will hopefully be running a Q&A with J. Scott Savage in the near future.
Overall, I think this is one of the greatest aspects of LT, getting writers in touch with their readers, and it has also cemented my belief that most authors are a gracious and generous lot.
