I can tell the lady cop is impressed that I could say this because she nods her head and puts her hand up to her mouth. She might be entertained, but I'm getting bored. [pg 78]
- Janeology by Karen Harrington
She cast him a saturnine look; those dark green eyes could bore a hole in him, could still, when she was fifty-nine, catch the attention of a man across the room. When she was six months old, Julian's grandmother was told how lovely her daughter was; maybe she should be in advertisements. [pg 200]
- Matrimony by Joshua Henkin
She became aware of a low murmur. She could not understand the words, but they sounded like a chant. [pg 132]
- Rises the Night by Colleen Gleason
Today's topic: LibraryThing authors. Who are your LibraryThing authors? What books of theirs do you have? Do you ever comment on an author's LT page? Have you received any comments from an author on your LT account?
I was surprised at how many author connections I have on my LibraryThing Profile. Of those listed, I have read books by four of the authors and am looking forward to reading books by the remaining fifteen. I guess I had better get reading!
I have read three books by Richard Montanari over the years, two I read earlier this year: The Rosary Girls, The Skin Gods and Merciless. Not too long ago, I read Emmett James'
Admit One: A Journey Into Film. Just recently I read Aberrations by Penelope Przekop as well as J Scott Savage's Far World, Book 1: Water Keep, both books I thoroughly enjoyed.
Karen Harrington falls in between the two categories at the moment, but will swiftly be moving into the "read" category as I read her novel, Janeology.
On the list of authors I have yet to read just yet:
Meg Waite Clayton
Jim C. Hines
Marisa de los Santos
Cheryl Kaye Tardif
I have not yet left a comment at the LT site for an author. I have received an invitation to be friends from the occasional author, but other than that, that's the closest I have come to receiving comments from an author directly on my LT page. I have, however, had contact with three of the above authors either through my blog or via e-mail. In every case it has been a pleasant exchange, and I was thrilled that the authors took the time to talk to little ol' me.
It is time to head over to My Friend Amy's! She is accepting nominations for the Book Blogger Appreciation Week Awards 2008.
