Tuesday Thingers

Today's Question: 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?

I only have a few authors listed as favorites on LT- A.S. Byatt, David Sedaris, Margaret Atwood, Steve Sheinkin, Jen Lancaster and Leo Tolstoy. Six people share some combination of three of the six. I just picked my top favorites overall, not every author I could have chosen. I wanted to choose my favorite literary writers, a favorite comics artist, my favorite funny writers and my favorite "classic" writer. None of the people with whom I share favorites picked Steve Sheinkin, which sort of surprises me (he's awesome!) and sort of doesn't (he's a little obscure for non-comics-fans). I'm also the only person to pick him as a favorite. The picture above is that of Jen Lancaster, who wrote two books I really enjoyed, Bitter is the New Black and Bright Lights, Big Ass. And you?
