For this week’s Tuesday Thingers topic, Boston Bibliophile has some questions about favorite authors, as well as a little photo project:
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, first of all – I have a lot of favorite authors listed. Too many to name here. I’m not going to count them, but I’m sure there are over a hundred. And I chose them . . . because they’re my favorite authors! But also because when I was doing the list, I had just signed up for LT’s Early Reviewer program, and I had a theory that a lengthy list of favorites might help my chances when the mighty algorithm was applied. Don’t know how many people share my choices. Probably a lot. My list is fairly eclectic.
And for a photo, I’ll share this one of Barbara Pym, “borrowed” from the back of the dust jacket to A Very Private Eye: An Autobiography in Diaries and Letters, edited by Hazel Holt and Barbara’s sister Hilary Pym. I did check out how many other LT members share my Pym enthusiasm. Forty-six. Should be more.
