Introducing The 101 Books Mailbag!

I want to try something new today to kick off December.

Awhile back, I wrote a post in which you guys could ask me a bunch of questions about books, writing, blogging, my process, etc, and I answered your questions in the comments. The post, surprisingly, did well.

Me being the guy always looking for fresh content, I decided I could make that into a series of posts.

So, today, I’m introducing the 101 Books Mailbag.

Ask me about anything related to books, writing, blogging, you name it. On Friday, assuming enough people ask questions to make this viable, I’ll post your questions and my answers.

No guarantees that I’ll post your question. But if I do, I’ll link to your blog or to your Twitter account (your choice) so be sure to include one of those with your question.

If it goes well, I’ll do the 101 Books mailbag every few months and turn it into a series of posts.

So what’s your question about books, blogging, writing?

You can either ask in the comments section below, email me at rob.bruce76@gmail.com or hit me up on Twitter @robertbruce76. Your choice.

Remember, I’ll answer your questions in my post on this coming Friday.

Now fire away!

  1. Having read most of the 101 greatest books and commented on them, I’m curious what you think are the basic qualities that makes a book a contender for the greatest book list.

  2. I have a blogging question:
    Having a new book blog it seems like all of the blogging tips-type posts don’t apply to book blogs (linky parties? um no.) What blog tips can you share that are book blog specific? Thanks!

    Do you have another big reading goal after you finish 101 Books? If not, what is the first book you plan to read after the goal is reached?

  4. Do you have other writing projects outside of work going, and where do you find the time for all the reading, and writing? And still have a personal and social life?

  5. Could it be a challenge to you to learn another language because you want to be able to read a certain book (certain books) in the original language?

  6. Aside from the awesome content and great subject matter of your blog, what did you do initially to get people to read your blog? Are there things outside of the posts themselves that you continue to do to build your subscriber list?

  7. Why don’t you like science fiction? Does your dislike spread to other speculative fiction genres (i.e. fantasy, horror, slipstream)? Was there a specific book(s) which made you decide you didn’t like it?

    • Oh, great question, I was just about to comment with something similar! The majority of book bloggers I follow are at least minimally pro-SF, so I’m interested in the opposite perspective.

  8. Do you have any regrets about making the commitment to read the 100 books on the Times list? Do you ever have time to read anything else?

  9. Is there any books on the list that you struggled to get into? What made you keep going if so? And do regret reading any of them?

  10. Someone once said that everyone has a novel in them. Do you believe this and do you believe blogging is an attempt to satisfy the would-be novelist in us?
