It’s #ReaderThanks Day on Twitter, and we asked you which books, authors, and readers you’re particularly grateful for today. From Margaret Atwood to Neil Gaiman, to librarian godmothers and well-read spouses, to diligent reviewers and the worlds of Oz and Roshar, you told us what means most to you in the books you read and the authors you love. That’s why we want to give you a copy of What Makes This Book So Great by Jo Walton, a Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author and chronic re-reader who understands exactly why certain works are worth revisting, and can articulate their strengths, quirks, and complexities like no other writer can.
Collecting over 130 essays that first appeared here on Tor.com, What Makes This Book So Great delves into books by C.J. Cherryh, Samuel R. Delany, Salman Rushdie, Ursula K. Le Guin, and many, many others. Out from Tor Books on January 21, it’s the perfect way to celebrate the joy we all find in reading, and a tribute to the classic texts, guilty pleasures, and forgotten gems of science fiction and fantasy that every fan of the genre treasures.
