 How do you support your favorite authors?

Julie Review Avatar Julie:

Here are some suggestions on how you can support your favorite authors.

  • Buy their books to display on your pretty bookshelves.
  • Buy their books for other people as gifts.
  • Read their books!
  • Review their books.
  • Interact with them on social media.
  • Share their books on social media.
  • Request their books for your local library.
  • Visit them when they come to your local town for a signing.

What other examples of supporting authors can you think of?



Julie’s list is pretty all-encompassing. I’ll add:

  • Fan art.
  • Talk up their books every where you go.
  • Read their books in public – so everyone can see it.
  • Convince your book club to read the book.

    Many libraries even if they don’t want to add your donated book to their collection will put it in their booksales, thereby also getting it out to other readers.

    I was reading something recently about author’s book collections, and one said they don’t really collect books. Books are meant for reading, they said, so once they’ve finished a book, they try to get it passed on to other readers one way or another. I thought that was an interesting way of looking at it!

    As a parent and teacher, I have another way to push books onto new readers–read-alouds and book talks!

      That’s a good point about the book sales. Ooh yes read alouds in class, I did love those when a teacher would read a fun book for us.

      I donated a bunch of books to the library the last time I moved, Brandee. It was sad to get rid of them. But at least I knew they were going to other readers!
