The Awesomeness of Magaret Atwood: Asking her a Question

A good friend and a fellow book-lover recently allerted me about the possibility of asking questions to some selected writers at Goodreads. And he told me because he knows how much I workship Margaret Atwood and she was one of the chosen authors for this idea that Goodreads is testing at the moment. So, I asked a question and imagine my surprise and awe when I got an email telling me that “Margaret has answered your question”. If you follow this blog I’m sure you can guess which of her novels I asked her about (sorry for the deleted text. A tiny, little effort to keep my location private over here):

  1. Congrats on getting your question answered! I love, LOVE when authors take the time to do this. It really does mean the world. I’m going to have to go back and read some of your Alias Grace posts.
    PS – Now I’m double sad because I can’t do this with Zora Neale Hurston.

  2. That’s awesome that she answered your question, you must have been thrilled! πŸ˜€

    I think it’s cool that GoodReads added this feature. I haven’t asked an author a question yet (wouldn’t know what to ask!) but it’s another great way to connect readers and authors.

    1. I know! She is taking time to answer readers’ questions and it means a lot. She’s not there to promote herself (as if she needed it!), but she’s doing it because she wants to be more engaged with readers. Amazing!

  3. Wow, so great that Atwood answered your question. And I never knew Goodreads had this feature. It’s a great one!

  4. I’ve only read one book by Atwood and that was The Handmaid’s Tale. several years ago. I really need to read Alias Grace this year. Thanks for sharing Elena. I’m sure she made your day πŸ™‚ with her thoughtful answer back to you. Good job.

Have something to say?
