This week's Booking Through Thursday focuses on authors. I have answered the "5 for favorites" list below... and added a question of my own, making it 6. Be sure to leave a comment with your answers, or a link to your blog, if you want to play too.
1. Do you have a favorite author?
2. Have you read everything he or she has written?
No, I still need to read Emma.
3. Did you LIKE everything?
So far, yes.
4. How about a least favorite author?
Probably Ernest Hemingway. I've yet to read a story written by him that I liked.
5. An author you wanted to like, but didn’t?
Ernest Hemingway. He's such a lauded author... but I just hate his stories. Another one is Mary Westmacott, the nom de plume of Agatha Christie. I hoped to enjoy the books under this name, but didn't like the first one I read and have since decided to pass on reading any others. I'll stick to the crime novels under her real name.
6. Have you ever met a real author? (I added this one)
Yes, I met the N. A. Perez, the daughter of the original author of the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys books. She is an author and gave me an autographed copy of one of her first books. I also received two letters from Janette Oke during my childhood, although I've never met her in person.
