The first website I remember visiting.

I started visiting websites over the university years, so I’m sure it was something about ancient laws or the Roman Empire (yes, I had to study those. So useful n today’s world.) (I loved it….) or some other along those lines.

So, I’ll tell you the first website I remember visiting for books, and that was Stephenie Meyer’s website.

It run the year 2007 (maybe 2008) and we had moved to the UK long enough that I could start reading a novel in English, but not long enough that I could read said novel without a dictionary, and it would take me forever.

Enter Twilight book, one I took from the local library because it seemed less intimidating.

I fell in love with that book and with the series. I also fallout of love with it when it began to turn silly, with sides and teams and seriously. At that point I was out.

But I was able to read those books while in love, and it was amazing.

It dawned on me I could see who wrote those stories, I went to her website, an…. wow.

I was in an author’s website for the first time my life.

I went through very page and every article, soaking up in stories about my currently favorite books and people. I can still remember how it looked, and I was obsessed with it for weeks.

So, this is my story, what’s yours?


  1. I love that ability to get to know an author through the internet. I genuinely don’t understand why authors don’t have websites these days. Good memory!!

  2. Yes, the ability to connect directly with an author and their work like that is absolutely amazing. Several of the ones I follow have truly amazing communities built around their sites.

  3. One of my first would have been, because at the time (1999) I was REALLY into Animorphs by K.A. Applegate, and I wanted to read more about the characters and the show that they were making. Some authors do maintain really good websites….Christopher L Bennett, for instance, has annotations for most of his books that give background info!
