Since I'm not reading books--haven't finished a single one in December...well, maybe one--I thought I'd share what I have been reading! It's not books, but it's still fun!
Bookreporter.com is running Author Holiday Blogs, one of which is my favvvvorite graphic novelist, Bill Willingham, of the Fables series. Click here to read "The Most Important Book," the story of how his love for reading (something other than comics) was born.
More about Author Holiday Blogs:
Many great writers share that their path to publishing started by being a voracious reader. To celebrate this season of giving --- and getting --- more than thirty authors are sharing their favorite memories of giving or receiving a book at the holidays on the Bookreporter.com Author Holiday Blog. For example, International best-selling author Mary Higgins Clark reminisces about the books that she was overjoyed to find under the Christmas tree during her childhood, while her daughter and co-writer, Carol Higgins Clark, theorizes that her most popular character, private detective Regan Reilly, may have had her roots in books given to her as a young girl. Meanwhile, Wendy Corsi Staub tells us why Christmas always means Little Women to her.
Upcoming blogs include a piece by Francoise Mouly, who reminisces about the intimate experience she shared over a comic strip with her now-husband, cartoonist Art Spiegelman, during the early stages of their relationship, and how that event forever changed the way she approached the solitary act of reading. Head over to Bookreporter.com each day until Christmas to read these essays and others from David Baldacci, Laura Pedersen, Ad Hudler, Kristin Hannah, Garth Stein, M.J. Rose, Mary Kay Andrews and more.
The blogs can be read each day at: http://www.bookreporter.com/blog/blog/index.asp
