Today’s post shares the dual distinction of officially putting our third month in the books, and being our 100th post since kicking things off here in November.
Now, we don’t want to pat ourselves on the back, but since there’s no one else to do it we’ll just go ahead and say that it’s pretty amazing that in the past 30 days alone we have thrown the spotlight on 26 different authors. We may not be bottomless fonts of knowledge and insight, but you can’t say we lack range in our literary interests. Just take a look at this past month’s line up:
John CheeverRoberto BolanoJohn SteinbeckBilly CollinsWallace StegnerE.L. DoctorowAlexander SolzhenitsynAlice MunroJames JoyceAldous HuxleyGeorge OrwellThomas MannItalo CalvinoJoseph ConradEdith WhartonH. Rider HaggardToni MorrisonSue Monk KiddDavid GrannJohn HerseyJ.D. SalingerAnnie ProulxEudora WeltyDouglas ThayerHenry JamesDaniel OrozcoPhilip Roth
That's a decent list by anyone's standards. And there's lots more where that came from. You just need to strap in and feel the 'Gs.' As always, here are the 5 most popular posts from this past month:
We’re glad to have each and every one of you as readers, and we hope you’ll continue to spread the word about the atomic explosion of awesome happening over here at ShelfActualization.com.
