Wrap-Up for 2010-5: Author Fun Facts

This week, thanks to Suey, we revisited an old favorite...Author Fun Facts. This is always a fun topic, both to participate in and to read about!

Naida at the bookworm shared information about Margaret Mitchell and Gone With the Wind, including the possible origin of that famous line, "Frankly, my dear...".

Dana at Windows Wide Open joined Weekly Geeks (welcome Dana!) with her post on Maeve Binchy, an author she "adores."

Since Ceri at Not in the Pink is currently reading The Stand (and whatever you do, don't sneeze around her), she chose to feature Stephen King.

Aggie at Some Enchanted Reading featured Susanna Clarke, author of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell.

And Nicki at Every Book and Cranny (another newbie to Weekly Geeks...welcome!) went with Daphne du Maurier. Among other things, she discusses her connection with Alfred Hitchcock.

Thanks to Suey for choosing an oldie but goodie. And thanks to all of the Geeks who joined in this week. We'll be back tomorrow with the next topic.

TIME, and more:
