1. Do you have a favorite author?
Books, movies, songs, I never really have ONE favorite, usually a lot that I like. These questions will work best with one author, though, so if I have to choose one I’ll say John Steinbeck, as he has 2 books in my top 5 favorite list (“East of Eden” and Grapes of Wrath”).
2. Have you read everything he or she has written?
I haven’t. I still haven’t even read “The Pearl” or “The Red Pony,” as well as many of his lesser-known works.
3. Did you LIKE everything?
You know, I really didn’t like “Of Mice and Men” and I wasn’t all that crazy about “Cannery Row,” although I think I probably need to give both of them another shot. It has been about 10 years since I tried either one.
4. How about a least favorite author?
My least favorite author is anyone who acts like a jackass online. Read point two of this post by author John Scalzi about the correct way for authors to behave online. I love this guy. I need to read more of his books (Zoe’s Tale was awesome) so I can add him to my ‘favorite authors’ list, he already writes one of my very favorite blogs. He’s got good/hilarious posts on the same topic here and here as well.
5. An author you wanted to like, but didn’t?
I can’t think of one off the top of my head…
