One of the things I love about the combination of book bloggers and Twitter is the never-ending supply of new things to think about and read.
Like the blog Ward Six. For whatever reason, I'd never run across this book reviews/bookish thoughts/writing bits and bobs/general book knowledge blog and then, bam, everyone on Twitter is tweeting about this 10-over-80 list of great authors on Ward Six. So I had a look-see.
It's a great idea - there are always "25 under 25" or "10 new writers under 30" or whatever type lists so I think it's wonderful that someone took the time to honor authors for their longevity. Beverly Cleary is 94 - 94! - and she still writes books. Rhian created a great list honoring authors she loves and I'm not going to copy it all here because I want everyone to visit Ward Six for themselves.
So, go visit. Then stay a while and read more of their posts.
