Read 'Em Yet? Wednesday July 22


Hosted by Veronika at True Harbour.


"Read 'Em Yet? Wednesday features an author that keeps showing up on your booklists, but may or may not have been tackled yet. Now's your chance!

Your mission: Read about this week's author, then investigate their bibiliography. If you have read one of their works in the past, post about it on your blog (book review, thumbs-up or thumbs-down recommendation, or a short synopsis; it's up to you!).


If you haven't read one of their works, take a look at their bibliography, select one or two titles that interest you, and post about your finds on your blog, along with an idea of when you might read them.

If you're not convinced that they're worth your time, that's fine; still post about it. Why don't they interest you? What do you dislike about their genre or writing style? Make sure to link back here with your answers so others can read them!"

Veronika makes it all very easy with links to authors works and biographies.


Authors she's featured thus far:

Stepen Crane
Gail Carson Levine

Lord Alfred Tennyson

Rosemary Suttcliff

Stephen Crane is this week's author. I guessed from his photo who it was last week and won a personal desktop background. She features a different writer each week and a photo of next week's author to name for a prize.

It's a lot of fun and I am learning things. Please step over to True Harbour and check it out.

I will be reading Maggie: A Girl of the Streets by Stephen
Crane and posting my thoughts within the week.
