♦Welcome to another edition of the Open Book Blog Hop!♦
Ask your readers to share their favorite books.
Welcome back to another Open Book Blog Hop! The authors included in this ongoing series wish to thank you for your reads. We appreciate, even more so, when you share our writings with your friends. If you’re new to the series, welcome aboard. The authors engage and impress weekly. Prepare to become a regular reader.
Please don’t be shy. I want to hear from you! In the comments below, drop the title and author of one (or more) of your favorite books.
We spend so much time preparing these blogs and other posts, we sometimes don’t do enough outreach with those who read them. Now is a great time to talk about books you’re reading and really enjoying. Maybe you’re stuck at home? Maybe you just got to one in the big pile you’ve been keeping next to your bed. Whatever is going on with your reading life, I want to hear about it.
Fill up the comments! Let’s make this a productive discussion. (And, if you’ve arrived here days and months later than this was originally posted, I still want to hear from you if you’ll take the time to send a comment about that book you love.)
Nothing helps a writer more than word of mouth. When you talk about their books, you’re helping them to get their work into another reader’s hands. We appreciate that beyond words. It’s how we are able to continue working and bringing you more pieces to share with one another.
Let me help you get started… I’m a total Lit-nerd. I love those books we were assigned in English class. My favorites right now: The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde and The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Emma Orczy. I’ve read quite a few non-lit books, too. My favorite? The Big Tomorrow: Hollywood and the Politics of the American Way by Lary May. I picked that one up during my graduate studies in film. My focus was politics and history on film and screenwriting. I loved those classes so much, and I have copies of my papers from that time here on the site, so you can look at the bibliographies for more great non-fiction recommendations.
If you want to know more about my reading list, you can check me out my lists on Goodreads.
But, seriously, I want to hear about your lists! Hop on over to the other author pages to get some great recommendations and see if you have reading in common with them too!
