Classic Author Focus: Summary and Links

For my Classic Author Focus post this month, I decided to go back and list all the authors I have featured, along with a link to my post and links to members’ reviews of their works, if there are any. If you’re interested in an author or book, you can easily read a few of the reviews. I’m hoping this post will produce some synergy encouraging members to enjoy the works by these authors, and maybe, in a few cases, be the first to post a review for a classic author.

Please let me know if you think this is a good idea. Would you prefer I list members’ reviews at the end of each monthly post, or should I write another post like this annually? Or none of the above?

  1. I definitely like listing member reviews along with the author. It doesn’t make a big difference for me, whether it is annual or monthly.

  2. I like the idea of adding the links to the monthly posts. Wouldn’t that be easiest for you, too?

    Thanks for this post with all your past features. It’s great for those of us who are new here! (and I’m pleased to see I’ve read and reviewed one of them!)

  3. Which shows me how I have read, blogged and not linked to any of the many books featured here, LOL.
    Links on the individual posts as mentioned (granted it’s not a lot of trouble) would be great.

  4. This summary is great. Looking forward I think it would be helpful to have links to reviews from members on the individual posts. Thanks for all you do to keep CC interesting and informative!
