Happy bookish birthdays (September 21) to…

Happy bookish birthdays (September 21) to…

First time I’m trying this…let me know if you like it. 🙂 [Update: you did. 😉 This was first published on September 21st, 2017, and I’ve now done it for a full year. That doesn’t mean I won’t add authors to them, but I’m really happy to have listed authors for your birthday…whenever it is. Oh, except I think I’ll need to add February 29th when we get to a leap year).

The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. :) Shop ’til you help! :)

    I like it. My grandmother on my mom’s side was a southern gal, so of course I love the books of Fannie Flag. My dad was a raconteur extraordinaire who entertained me when I was a kid with stories of how he outran the headless horseman in the Black Hills, which may have led to my love of the eerie and unexplainable, so I am also a fan of Stephen King and HG Wells. I wasn’t familiar with Cassandra Rose Clarke, so I clicked your link. Her books seem to be the type I might enjoy, so I’m going to do some sampling. Thanks for the introduction!

      Thanks for writing, Lady!

      That sort of discovery was exactly what I was hoping would happen!

      My Significant Other particularly likes Fannie Flagg…and we recently both read Welcome to the World, Baby Girl, which we both liked.

      I think The Stand may be the great American novel, and Wells wrote my favorite short story (The Country of the Blind)…

    Looks good to me, thanks for the links to the author pages, Bufo strikes again! ; ) Good idea.

      Glad you liked it! I was inspired by doing the This Day in Geeky History tweets at @TMCGTT, but this is a bit different. Today was a day with particularly well-known authors, and I don’t know if I’ll do it every day…but I did get one ready for the 22nd. 🙂
