You may not have noticed, so I thought I'd point out that I've updated my blog list in the right nav column. I just recently discovered that there's a veritable buffet of "book bloggers" out there. I suppose this shouldn't surprise me, seeing as there's a blog network for just about everything. But my initial searches for fellow book bloggers came up with the weirdest most random selection of sites, including (but not limited to) one site that came up in technorati written in a foreign language with pictures of people in an arid climate, hanging from nooses and wearing blindfolds. I suppose it could have been the cover of a non fiction book about terrorism, but I didn't wait around to find out. I totally freaked out and backed out of that site faster than the time I accidentally went to a porn site at work while googling "Britney Spears" (I worked at a radio station, so get off my back okay?).
Anyways, this time I stumbled upon a legit group of bloggers that review books. Just like me! Except at first glance, it looks like it might be sort of an exclusive group. They throw around acronyms like Ralf Helfer uses exclamation points, host "challenges" and have "giveaways" but the protocol for participation is a little hazy for the newbie. I added links to my two favs so far-
www.booksidoneread.blogspot.com - she takes wit and sass to a new level AND she reviewed Modoc (which I also reviewed in May) and I fully agree with her review.
http://heatherlo.wordpress.com/ (Book Addiction)- we seem to have a fair amount in common as far as what we read.
