Booking Through Thursday: One Question

Booking Through Thursday's Question: If you could ask your favorite author (alive or dead) one question … who would you ask, and what would the question be?

It should be fairly obvious for readers of this blog to know what my question would be. I decided awhile back that my question of choice for authors is: What five books are most important or influential to you? And then I decided to make it a regular-ish feature and call it Authors Pick Five!

Boring though the question may be, the answers, to me, are quite interesting.

So who would I ask if I could? Hmmm.... let me think..... oh yeah, that Markus Zusak author!! :) Do you think he has an email contact on his site? Nope. Would I be brave enough to send him my question if he did? Probably not. Or maybe I'd have to take about six months to talk myself into it. Yes, I'm that pathetic.

I'd love to ask John Green this question too (and I think I even already know what one or two of his answers would be) and he even has an email that he advertises, and you know what? He might even answer! Be brave, be brave!

Dead authors I'd love to ask: Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, Charles Dickens... just to name a few.


  1. Hi!
    Great authors to ask a question of! I would be a little shy about asking them a question too. Have a great day!

    Just Books

  2. I love that question! Something like that used to be a regular question on Powell's interviews, and they would put links to the books. Seems like they've stopped doing that, mostly...

  3. I'm always interested to see what books authors love.

  4. I'd love to hear John Green's answer to that question! Great idea for a feature.

    Here's my BTT answer.

  5. I think that's a great question. I'm not sure what living author I would want to ask. I'm no even sure what my answer would be to that question. I'm going to think about that.
