Literary Links

There are a lot of great book-related blogs out there. I decided to break my favorites into two categories -- traditional and reader/writer generated.

Part I: Traditional

Amazon’s Omnivoracious

Written by Amazon’s book editors, the blog features Q&As, news, and reviews. I think it’s a fair assessment to say Amazon has completely altered the way books are sold and helped revolutionize ecommerce. What I like about this blog is that they discuss so many different types of literature – scifi, graphic novels, childrens lit and more. They also have a regular round up on book reviews every Monday.

New York Times Paper Cuts

This is written by the book review editors. I enjoy their playlist feature where authors discuss some of their favorite songs. I hate to admit it but most times there are a lot of artists I’ve never heard of.

Washington Post Short Stack

Every week, the Book World picks five favorite books and discusses them. The latest post discusses five fictional novels based on real-life historical mysteries or puzzles. It was a good reminder to me – I’ve been meaning to read The Daughter of Time for years. Library time!

Hey Anne,

Stumbled across your blog randomly. These are some good resource. I'm going to have to keep an eye on them as I really need to read more.
