Because I need another project (so much free time, you know), I would like to introduce you to the newest book reviewer for The Environmental Blog. Uh, yeah, me! Go check out this one stop shop for all things environmental.
This week's installment of "The Finicky Reader" might step on some toes. I'm putting my head down and ballsily taking on the label, "women's fiction" in "Book Snobbery: Taking Aim at Overused Genres One Snide Remark at a Time." Let me know if you have answers to the questions I've posed regarding genre conventions and marketing. Click HERE.
Dewey has invented a fantastic sort of community building blog challenge called Weekly Geeks. There's a theme every week, and this week's kickoff is Discover New Blogs. With that in mind, I found the following wonderfulfantastic new-to-me blogs from the list of Weekly Geek participants. Keep in mind, there are at least a gazillion more I'd love to gush about, but I realize you probably have a busy day ahead whilst I lie here in my laziness. Without further ado...
Random Field Notes - Right up my alley, Ashleigh is an Egyptologist, working on a PhD, and she reads! Her blog is just so freakin' cool, I can't wait to spend endless hours digging in and simultaneously procrastinating from any paper grading that I need to do.
Adventures in Reading - Another fantastic blog. I love the design, I love the content, and I want to ravage the blogroll and sundry sidebar links.
Naked Without Books - Bybee's is a name I've seen around the book blogs endlessly, and I have no idea how I haven't bookmarked her before now. She's fantastic, reads a wide variety of books, and she's the only other blogger around that I've seen mention The Borden Tragedy graphic novel that I read a while back.
Trish's Reading Nook - A fellow Texan! And even though I'm not one anymore, I still say loud and proud, Trish is a sister o'mine in her Texanhood! Her blog is just addictive and fantastic. Go see for yourself.
The Inside Cover - Rebecca Adler's blog is a fun mixture of thoughtful ruminations, book news, links, etc. I can't wait to explore more. And it looks so professionally swanky! I love it.
Thanks to Dewey for the wonderful idea for Weekly Geeks! There's tons o'fun on the horizon.
