Library Thing Tuesday (16) + Pic of Emmy

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?

These are my LibraryThing authors and the books I own/have read:

Randy Alcorn (RandyAlcorn) Deadline

Meg Waite Clayton (megwaiteclayton) Wednesday Sisters

David Ebershoff (Debershoff) The 19th Wife (read my review)

Mary E. Pearson (MaryEPearson) Adoration of Jenna Fox (TBR)

Jayne Pupek (JaynePupek) Tomato Girl (read my review)

Michelle Richmond (michrichmond) No One You Know (read my review)

J Scott Savage (jscottsavage) Farword (currently reading)

Melissa Walker (mewalker) Violet on the Runway, Violet by Design, Violet in Private (read my reviews)

Bill Walsh (wfwalsh) Lapsing into a Comma

Sara Zarr (sarazarr) Sweethearts (read my review)

I commented on Sara's page to tell her that I reviewed Sweethearts and she commented on mine with a thank you. Jayne invited me to join the Algonquin Readers Round Table. Meg thanked me for reviewing her book on LT. Michelle commented here on my blog and Melissa comes around here every now and then and comments.

I do think it's quite a nice feature and fun to see what books authors are reading.

What about you? Do authors ever comment on your blog or LT page?


So, because Dawn (and I am sure a few others) missed Emmy last week, here she is in all her book loving glory:

I've had to push all the books back because her favorite trick was to jump behind the books and send them crashing down to the floor. As you can see, I love all those "The Art of " type books especially for animated movies and especially for the concept sketches they include.


Don't forget to enter my contest to win one of 3 copies of The Big Splash by Jack Ferraiolo. It's the best time you'll ever have in a middle school! There are also details on that post about how you can get a free Squirt Gun (very useful - even if it's just to water plants).

Reviewer X's Young Adult Weekly column is back (YAY!) and now has a contest attached. This week you can be entered to win The Brothers Torres if you send her an e-mail by August 30th.

Monie is giving away an ARC of the graphic novel American Widow. Enter by August 31st.

The 3 R's is passing on some of her winnings from the big Hachette giveaway. Enter by September 5th.

And don't forget to get your nominations in for Book Blogger Appreciation Week. They close on August 31st and there are lots of categories including Best YA blog, Most Eclectic Taste and tons more. It's a great way to support your favorite sites. I'm doing a write-in nomination for Best Meme Host for our dear Tuesday Thingers host Boston Bibliophile. Who's with me?

Wow! I'm impressed! I only have 2 authors on LT. I have another one on Good Reads, and I have had one author comment on my blog.

I don't have any of you LT Authors!

I agree with you that it's a fun feature. I always like to know what the authors I read are reading. It's nice that they've commented on you page to thank you.

Emmy's quite a little stinker! :-D I'm currently battling "get off the table!" and "Get out of the clean laundry basket!" right now with my kitties. Fur-children make life so much more interesting, don't they?

I only have 2 LT authors so far, and neither of them really keeps up with cataloging or reviewing their books, though I'd love it if they did. Whenever I attend author signings (or when I host them at work), I always like to ask what they're reading. I think it's very telling.

Hey I read Farwold. I just posted my review. I didn't put in any spoilers. I did my interview with Mr. Savage. I'm making it into a podcast.

What a great picture of Emmy! My cat was always doing that too and so I had to push the books back as well.

This was a fun LT question. I hadn't taken a look at the author's list in awhile and was surprised by how many books by LT authors I own. Eventually I will be able to say I've read them all too. :-)

Emmy is super cute! I also like those "art of" type books, I think they're interesting and nice to look at - good for displaying.

For me, authors tend to comment on/email regarding my blog rather than on LibraryThing.

Shooting Stars Mag said...

such a cute cat! i love the pictures. as for authors posting on my blog...i've had a couple every now and then like melissa walker, stephanie kuehnert, kelly parra, etc.
It's quite fun!

Authors have commented on my blog, but I still need to build my LT collection. I've been working most on Goodreads.

Linda said...

Emmy is SO adorable. But aren't kitties a pain in the tush sometimes? Abby is way too athletic and climbs EVERYWHERE!

Kathleen Gilligan said...

Love the kitty pic :)

It's great to see so many authors on LT now. I hope they keep joining!

Emmy is adorable, she looks very mischievous. I have a few LT authors but I really haven't taken that much time to look at the feature.

The Budgeting Diva said...

I looked and do no have any authors in my library yet, but I am looking forward to checking out some of the ones on your list.

Chick Lit Teens said...

What a gorgeous cat! She is so adorable.

I have only two LT authors, 2.5 if you count one I listed, but haven't yet read :)

Thanks for the pic of Emmy!
