An atomic explosion of awesome

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 Cheever
Roberto Bolano
John Steinbeck
Billy Collins
Wallace Stegner
E.L. Doctorow
Alexander Solzhenitsyn
Alice Munro
James Joyce
Aldous Huxley
George Orwell
Thomas Mann
Italo Calvino
Joseph Conrad
Edith Wharton
H. Rider Haggard
Toni Morrison
Sue Monk Kidd
David Grann
John Hersey
J.D. Salinger
Annie Proulx
Eudora Welty
Douglas Thayer
Henry James
Daniel Orozco
Philip 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
