Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
I admit surprise! At least four people like comedies best plus it got several 'included' votes. Although two people do not like horror at all, another three like horror best. And I agree with Liss that Disney and Pixar are entertaining for any age. :-)

WEEK #134 (One Question.)
Q1. Nikki asks: In light of recent, and not so recent events, I was just wondering, when an author hits out at his/her readers, how do you as a reader respond? Please feel free to share you opinions, the pointers below are general answers.
1) stop supporting the author if you were previously doing so?
2) won't bother picking up that author's book(s)
3) still support the author if the claim is justifiable? like readers/reviewers were trolls ??
A: I think I mostly try to ignore author tirades and author/reviewer drama. I can't think of any at the moment. I imagine if I saw an author be really ugly and petty I would probably not read them again.

Thanks to those who are sending in Questions. DON'T BE SHY! Surely everyone has a Q or two you'd like to ask. Input suggestions in this Suggested Question Form. At the end of each month I draw from the suggestions I used during the month and that person will get a book choice or GC. I thank everyone for submitting questions. Thanks for sending in questions! We still have a supply of questions but from the same people so hopefully others will send more in -- even if they are duplicates I'll weed through or try to modify to use.
