What bookish blog posts did you most enjoy this week? A few of my picks are below.
The Century (Post) Mark, and What I've Learned From Readers
Posted by Greg on The New Dork Review of Books
The New Dork Review of Books is a new-ish book blog I get a kick out of reading regularly. This particular post marks Gerg's 100th post—and highlights a few of the things he's learned while blogging. (For example, EPL author Elizabeth Gilbert had a book contract prior to her spiritual journey. The shame!)
Maybe This Time by Jennifer Crusie
Posted by Sarah on Smart Bitches, Trashy Books
Lately I've been thinking about reading my first Jennifer Crusie book—especially after Jennifer Weiner and The Book Lady blogged about her, and Amy Scribner called her "one of the most deeply satisfying writers around" in the September issue of BookPage. Smart Bitches, Trashy Books, one of the best romance blogs around, weighed in this week, sharing conflicted feelings about Crusie's latest. Definitely worth a read (and a blog worth bookmarking if you're into romance).
