from Booking Through Thursday:
Do you read any author’s blogs? If so, are you looking for information on their next project? On the author personally? Something else?
Well, the answer is no. I don\’t read author blogs. It\’s hard enough to find time to keep up with my regular reading and the book blogs, I honestly can\’t squeeze another thing in. Occasionally I\’ll look up an author to answer a question I have about the background of their book, but this is more likely to be a wiki article or another blogger\’s interview with them. And I usually just visit once, not repeatedly. I did have Nick Hornby\’s blog on my reader for a while, but it got tiresome. I feel terrible saying that, because I love his bookish books, but the blog just wasn\’t doing it for me. And you can\’t leave comments there, so what\’s the fun in that? (Although if that option was open, I\’d probably feel too intimidated to do so!)
I know some of the book bloggers I read are also writers, but somehow that feels different to me. They feel like my blogging friends, not a stranger I\’m trying to scope out some information on. What about you? Do you read author\’s blogs?
