Reading Recommendations – 36 Authors recommended … so far

Since Nov. 18, 2013, I have been recommending authors and their books over at my other blog, Reading Recommendations. During that time, I have posted information on 36 authors who replied to my questionnaire and shared news with readers about themselves and their latest books, as well as suggestions of good books they themselves had been reading. The number of views for each blog post has steadily increased over the weeks and there are now 33 subscribers who receive an email each time a new author is recommended.

At the end of Dec., I wrote a post on this main blog recapping the first 16 authors promoted, and offered their information in handy-dandy lists that gathered the authors together according to their nationality, book type and genre, as well as a complete list of all the other books and authors they themselves were recommending. I decided it was time to do this again for the next group of authors (as of today, 20 more have been promoted on Reading Recommendations … and there are another 22 queued up to be posted in the coming weeks!), so here is a further compilation to be added to that list linked above.

For those who read according to an author’s nationality …
