Send postcards to your favorite authors.
Christy Childers of Postcards to Authors says:
Postcards to Authors is a little project that I started when I got a box of 100 Penguin Postcards for my birthday, & decided to use them to write to my favourite authors, literary agents, & other bookish people, just to say thanks for making great books.
... Yes, do it! You can usually write to an author via their publisher. Just check the spine of the book to see who published it, then google.
