’Tis the season for year-end list-making. And just like many other December activities — gift-buying, braving the cold, indulging in treats without splitting your pants — pulling together our best-of-blog list proved to be somewhat challenging.
It also didn’t take us long to learn that Jane Austen is to bookworms what cats are to the rest of Internet users — so if you missed our Friday Favorites post on her, refresh your memory here.
But to choose which author interviews to revisit? How can we pick a favorite? And what will the others think?
Emboldened by our third cup of coffee, though, we dared to stick our necks out:
* We love history and genealogy, so Julian Gray’s interview was right up our alley.
And finally, we felt much smarter after interviewing David Gaughran, who shared his insights into the self-publishing revolution, and Anne Chaconas and Annetta Ribken, who convinced a few journalism escapees that some people do value editors.
Thank you to everyone who has participated, and we invite you to recommend an author (self-nominations are OK, too!) for an interview in 2016.
