Reasons to Love Shannon Hale...
Welcome to the third day of the Calamity Jack tour. I thought I'd take a few minutes to share why I love Shannon Hale so much. And the first few reasons have nothing to do with the books she's authored. As great as they are, I would still love her as much if she was just a blogger. You see, she has a great little blog. And she really contributes to the community with her posts. You *should* definitely seek out her posts on "How To Be A Reader."

Commenting on comments, reviewing reviews
Now is it absolutely essential that authors have websites and blogs? Probably not. But I certainly like discovering my favorite authors have a blog to follow.
Now, let's talk about her books. I love them. I do. These are the ones I've reviewed:
Goose Girl, Enna Burning, River Secrets, Forest Born.
Book of a Thousand Days
There is only one novel that I haven't read yet, The Actor & The Housewife.
Have you read any Shannon Hale books? Do you have a favorite?
