I will be away from this blog for about a week. In the meantime, I have some new book reviewing blogs to recommended to you.
Tiny Little Reading Room - The author is a children's/teens' librarian who is trying to keep up with her reading challenges and is telling us about the books she is reading. I especially like how she lays out and labels her reviews. She includes sections a summary of the book, a reason why she chose the book, and her overall impression. She may also include a favorite quote from the text, as in her review of Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind.
Running with Books - Melissa Stoeger of the Deerfield Public Library has begun a blog of book reviews and news. So far most of the titles have been high interest titles like A Thousand Splendid Suns and Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. I like how she sometimes adds news into the reviews, such as telling us about the three books that Michael Chabon has scheduled for publication.
Brooklyn Book Talk - The Brooklyn Public Library, fifth largest library system in the U.S., with sixty neighborhood libraries, is using a blog as a platform for book discussions. You can see how the discussion on The Night Watch by Sarah Waters is going.
All of these have been added to the Librarian's Book Revoogle.
