Booking Through Thursday 2/12

February 12, 2009

This week’s Booking Through Thursday.

Do you read any author’s blogs? If so, are you looking for information on their next project? On the author personally? Something else?

I read authors’ blogs sometimes.  They’re not part of my regular blogging rotation, but every so often something will catch my attention.  I have friends who use Live Journal, and have authors on their friend feed, or on Twitter, so that’s how they catch my attention most of the time.  Neil Gaiman, Wil Wheaton, and Stephen Fry post excellent, often funny, tweets.

Blogs I’ve read include:

Robin McKinley (who blogs about her real life ringing church bells and having a rose garden, so I feel like I’m spying.)

Donna Gephart (who sent me a very nice note after I reviewed her book last year, and we’ve since emailed a few times.)

Via Amazon, I’ve read Aaron Elkins’ blog.  Which I almost typed “Gideon Oliver’s blog” so it’s clearly time to post this and get some coffee going.

    I’ll have to look for Stephen Fry on Twitter – you never know who you’ll find there these days.

    I’ve received notes from several authors after I’ve read and reviewed their books, but I don’t read all of their blogs. Happy Booking Through Thursday!

    I never thought to check out Twitter. I’ll have to do so.

    I’ll have to check out Wil Wheaton’s blog. That’s something I might be interested in.

    I also follow Gaiman and Wheaton via their blogs and Twitter, but I had no idea that Stephen Fry was Twittering/Tweeting (whatever it’s called). I’m so behind the times.

    Have a lovely weekend!
