When writers and their readers come together

“The fact is that all writers create their precursors. Their work modifies our conception of the past, just as it is bound to modify the future.” – Jorge Luis Borges

This past week I finally joined Goodreads.com. It wasn’t because of any friends recommending it to me (though they can have the credit if they really want it), but rather because of their Goodreads authors. Specifically, I was drawn in by the Q&A going on with Margaret Atwood. There’s something completely inspiring about having a chance to ask questions of someone you admire and who inspires you, someone you would almost never have the opportunity to me face-to-face, and to have that person take the time to answer your questions is amazing.

The Q&A with Margaret Atwood is the first that I’ve taken part in,  but it isn’t the only Q&A featuring a writer on the site, so I definitely recommend looking into your favorite authors on the site. Check back tomorrow for my review of Margaret Atwood’s The Year of the Flood.
