A Q&A With Yours Truly

Last Tuesday, I had the honor of being featured on WordPress’s Daily Post blog.

They featured a Q&A with me about how I came up with the 101 Books idea and how I’ve slowly developed my blog and grown the readership over the last three years.

Obviously, 101 Books would’ve never have grown without people to make it grow. So thank you guys for reading.

I thought I’d share the first question and answer with you guys. Then, you can visit the Daily Post blog to read the entire article.

Q&A With Lev Grossman from Time: Part 1

Today’s a cool day at 101 Books.

Lev Grossman was kind enough to answer a few of my questions about the selection process for the Time Magazine All-Time 100 list. Lev is a senior writer at Time and one of the two book critics (the other, Richard Lacayo) who selected the entire Time 100 list.

Not only that, but Lev is a successful author himself–having now written four novels. Last Tuesday, The Magician King–the follow-up to Lev’s widely-read The Magicians novel–was released. It’s been described as Harry Potter for grown-ups with a little Narnia thrown in there.

Anyway, in the middle of all that, Lev took the time to answer a few questions about the Time list, the selection process, the books that were excluded, and so on.

Part 2 comes tomorrow. I’ll also include a few of my thoughts after each set of questions.
