Follow Friday - I'm Feelin' Groovy, Let's Go to the 59th Street Bridge

It's Friday again, and this means it's time for Follow Friday. There has been a slight change to the format, as now there are two Follow Friday hosts blogs and two Follow Friday Features Bloggers each week. To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
  1. Follow both of the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts (Parajunkee and Alison Can Read) and any one else you want to follow on the list.
  2. Follow the two Featured Bloggers of the week - Ali's Bookshelf and The Housework Can Wait.
  3. Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing.
  4. Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments.
  5. Follow, follow, follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "Hi".
  6. If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love . . . and the followers.
  7. If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
  8. If you're new to the Follow Friday Hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
And now for the Follow Friday Question: What is one thing you wish you could tell your favorite author?

Many of my favorite authors are dead: Andre Norton, J.R.R. Tolkien, Isaac Asimov, Poul Anderson, Robert A. Heinlein, Frank Herbert, Roger Zelazny, Anne McCaffrey, and so on. But if I could, I'd probably tell them the same thing I tell every author I've met whose books I have enjoyed: Thank you.

  1. A great answer.

  2. There are some great authors that have brought the love of reading to each and everyone of us. Here's my FF New Follower!

  3. Just stopping by for the FF!

    Here’s my FF post

    Happy reading!

  4. Hopping through. I want to read Heinlein some day. My college roommate loved his books.
    My Hop

  5. @Tribute Books Mama: Thank you too.

  6. Dalene @ A Date With a Book: There are, and I am eternally grateful that so many people have given us the results of their creative efforts to enjoy. Granted, the effort an author puts in is only part of what makes a book a great read, but they have to be willing to sit down for hours on end with nothing but themselves and a blank page and we get the benefits.

  7. @Megan: Thank you for stopping by!

  8. @Alison Can Read: If you do decide to read some Heinlein, make sure you talk to someone who is familiar with his books first. His books range from juveniles like Red Planet and Have Spacesuit, Will Travel to very political pieces like The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress and Starship Troopers to books with a fair amount of sex in them like To Sail Beyond the Sunset and Time Enough for Love. He also has some real crap in his oeuvre, like Farnham's Freehold and Sixth Column, and those would be poor choices for a first Heinlein experience.
