Finding New Authors

Thanks to a blogger I follow on Google Reader, (I'm trying to find her again),  I've discovered an easy way to find new authors.

Click on the link, Gnooks and enter into Gnod the names of three of your favorite writers. Based on your choices, Gnod will then suggest a new author for you to read. So far, entering names of different genre writers, I've come up with four names (new to me).  They are Emily Barr (travel fiction), Graham Swift (literary fiction), Carol Lea Benjamin (mystery), and Rebecca Pawel (mystery set in Spain).

And there's more. Enter the name of an author to find others like him/her, on the Literature Map on Gnooks, http://www.gnooks.com/. Have fun with it!

What a great resource this has turned out to be!  If you are familiar with Gnod or are the blogger who shared this info, leave a comment for me, please!
