My People

I have been looking around the internets for book blogs that I could love.  I have a few favorites from people I already know well--Between These Pages for kids' books, Unshelved Book Club for comic reviews--but I've been looking for more and more. I found a lot that I didn't--romance blogs with great writing but that I'll never read the books, and a lot of blogs that do all the same theme days: Tuesday, a random line from a random page; Friday, a title from your to-read pile.  Not bad, but just not for me.

But I've finally lucked into a couple of great reads.  Fun, thoughtful writing, books right up my alley (fantasy, historical fiction), and reviews, reviews, reviews.  I'm constantly being reminded that reviews are what people want to read from book bloggers, including me.  I will endeavor to provide, gentle readers.

In the meantime, check out my two new imaginary sisters, Books I Done Read and Aarti Chapati's BookLust.  Not to be confused with Nancy Pearl's Book Lust, which I would love if she ever updated.

Oh, thank you so much :-) I feel so honored. I actually vacillate on whether blog readers want book reviews or other things, but book reviews are the only thing I provide, so hopefully there's a place for those! And I have your page bookmarked in Google Reader now, too, so I'm very excited to see what you'll be reviewing in future!

I have frequently been told to review more, though I tend to get on tangents about going to the actual library. I think I'm going to try reviewing every book I read for a while, but that could get a) intense, and b) embarrassing. We'll see how it goes!
