This week I finished a book called 'Wild Coast' that fit all three categories.
Also in keeping with routine, after I posted the review (in my blog From Where I Sit: LINK: From Where I Sit) I sent a brief email to the author letting him know I posted something.
Today I received an email back from author John Gimlette within an hour. I have never communicated with Mr. Gimlette before, but received a very warm note in return... He said he will post my review on his Facebook page for people to check out.
In past, I have had similar experiences with other authors. Not too long ago I engaged in an email dialogue with Jodi Picoult.
That was fun.
And now onto my next bit of reading, a book about the pooch Rin Tin Tin, written by Susan Orlean, one of my favorite Literary Journalists.
I have her email address marked already.
