This year, Book Blogger Appreciation Week has a theme: treasures. (And it’s even got its own specialized button!)
For Day 1, here’ s our topic:
We invite you to share with us about a great new book blog you’ve discovered since BBAW last year! If you are new to BBAW or book blogging, share with us the very first book blog you discovered. Tell us why this blog rocks your socks off and why you keep going back for more.
This past year I discovered The New Dork Review of Books, and I couldn’t be happier about that.
Greg Zimmerman is smart and funny, and he reads good stuff.
Actually, the stuff he reads and reviews usually is the more literary stuff. I like popping over there to see what he’s up to, and to just simply enjoy his writing style.
Also, everytime I see his photo labeled “Dork at Work”–in which he’s shown reading War and Peace, and which also bears the caption, “(I’ve never actually read War and Peace.)”–I can’t help but smile.
