Feature and Follow (7)

Posted May 3, 2012 by Lori in Books / 14 Comments Tags:

Feature and Follow is hosted each week by Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read as a way to find new blogs and gain new followers.

This week’s features are: Lauren from The Housework Can Wait and Ali from Ali’s Bookshelf Reviews.

This week’s question is: What is one thing you wish you could tell your favorite author?

Ok, this is a really tough question. As I’ve tried to think about what I would say all I could come up with are questions I’d ask them. And that’s not the same. So I guess in the end what I’d really like to say to my favorite author is, “Thank you.” Authors are the reason we’re here, doing what we do. Even if we weren’t blogging about books, we’d still be reading them. And that’s all thanks to the authors who create such beautiful stories and characters. I’m sure they hear those words all the time, but in reality, they deserve them. Authors put their souls into the books they write and every time we read their books we take a piece of them with us. And those characters they create? They stay with us too. They move us, change us, make us think. And for that, I would say, “Thank you.”

P.S. My favorite author is J.K. Rowling. I know it’s not surprising but the Harry Potter series opened up a whole new world to me. I’d never felt about a book the way I feel about those and that makes her my number one.

Let me know what you think about my answer in the comments. Is it a bit over the top? Too cheesy? I think maybe. And if you’re participating in FF, leave me a link so I can come visit you and read your answer!

    I think a simple “Thank You” is a great answer 🙂

    (I don’t personally have a favorite author – but I’m loving seeing who everyone is answering as their favorites.)

    Stop by and see my TGIF / Follow Friday! (It includes a giveaway!)

  2. I’m betting that any author would love to hear that heartfelt “thank you.”

    And J.K.R. is a popular choice, and for good reason. She got SO MANY people reading that weren’t doing it before. Plus, the HP series is one of the best series ever. So she’s earned the thousands of fans saying she’s their favorite author.
