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?

Great question, Marie.

I haven't used the favorite author feature yet, but now I'm thinking I need to.

I need to find the time to do more with my LT account.

I have a question about LT. Can you review a book that you don't have added to your shelves. For example if I had read a library book and reviewed it, and then wanted to include my review on LT, would that be possible? I was thinking that it wasn't, but thought I would ask in case you knew differently.

Marie said...

Alyce, your book needs to be in your LT catalog for you to review it. Does that help? If it's not in your LT catalog as far as I know you cannot add a review.
