I simply want to read.
I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.
As always, happy reading!
2017 editI will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year. 2017 edit #2I am happy to report that my bone marrow transplant was a success and that I'm feeling more like myself everyday. That said, I'm going to try to start blogging a little more frequently, but please bare with me as I still continue to recover.

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.
