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?


Listed as my favorite authors on Librarything are: Anne Brashares, Daniel Clowes, Roald Dahl, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Malcolm Gladwell, Jhumpa Lahiri, Audrey Niffenegger, J. K. Rowling, Adrian Tomine (pictured), Chris Ware

I picked Anne Brashares because I love the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series, Daniel Clowes for Ghost World and Ice Haven among other graphic novels, Roald Dahl for Matilda and The Witches, F. Scott Fitzgerald for The Great Gatsby, Malcolm Gladwell for The Tipping Point and Blink, Jhumpa Lahairi for The Namesake, Audrey Niffenegger for The Time Traveler's Wife, J.K. Rowling for the Harry Potter Series, Adrian Tomine for his comics Optic Nerve, and Chris Ware for Acme Novelty Library #18.

I share a ton of favorites with others, with one user I share 5: Daniel Clowes, Roald Dahl, Audrey Niffenegger, Adrian Tomine, Chris Ware. I see a pattern of three cartoonists/illustrators/graphic novelists.

I haven't updated my favorite authors probably since a year or so ago. But that's ok they are still my favorites, I should just probably add some.

Do we share any favorites?

You may notice I'm posting this rather early in the day for me. I got myself a half day at work, I'm off to get some cavities filled :(
