Letters to a New Book Blogger

Rate: 1 Flag

This afternoon, a friend asked me for advice about starting her own book blog. Because she loves books, reading, the literary world, and book reviews. Which is a great place to start.

She’s not as steeped in Internet and social media culture as I am, (I think I managed to explain Twitter correctly, though she may not be sold on the idea.) I did my best to explain book memes and the like.

So here’s a question:

What book blogs do you like to read?

What makes them great? The books they review? Book news? The design?

If you have a blog, give me a link to a post that you’re really proud of.

Elizabeth, of course the only book blog I regularly read is yours.

I read reviews on Big Salon, The Daily Beast, Slate, Foreign Policy, The Guardian, The Atlantic Wire, Mother Jones and Flavorwire all links I recommend.
