Today’s question from the Boston Bibliophile: Favorite Authors. Who do you have named in your LT account as favorite authors? Why did you choose them? How many people share your choices? Can you share a picture of one of them?
Well, I guess I have to update my LT profile, as the spot for “favorite authors” is blank! These are my LibraryThing mysteries:
- about me
- favorite authors
- about my library
- real name
I didn’t realize I was hiding so much of me in the shadows … I’ll work on this!
In the meantime, back to the question at hand – who are some of my favorite authors? This is very fluid for me – if I read a book I *really* like and the author has published others, I tend to add the others to my TBR list. Favorites that come to mind, that always satisfy, include Margaret Atwood and Carol Shields.
Other times I *really* like a book and then move on to others by the same author, only to find that the subsequent books don’t meet the benchmark. I loved Ann Patchett’s Bel Canto, but was on the fence about The Magician’s Assistant. I’m finishing up Run now, and I’ll report back as to where it falls on the spectrum of Ann Patchett books I’ve read.
Here’s a photo of one of the authors I’ve mentioned, check the comments to see who it is:
