I will be very interested to see what responses you get from bloggers who are better read than I am. I shall want to visit them. Thanks too for the link to the Canadian Books site. It will surely provide suggestions for many happy hours of reading.
Then I follow a great huge pile of personal/review CanLit blogs. It’s tough to call out favourites! After a while it’s hard to separate the blog from the blogger, and it’s hard to state objectively if I enjoy it because a given post has a wide appeal or because it’s like catching up with a friend. But I read at least a half dozen of them *religiously*.
I also feel like I’ve barely scratched the surface of what’s out there. Every day I’m discovering new, incredibly maintained and professional Canadian book blogs. Like Salty Ink (http://saltyink.com/)! How did I not know that site was there before three weeks ago? If I were a Maritimer, that would be my favourite blog *ever*.
This month’s Quill and Quire has a profile of 5 prolific bloggers.
Kerry, Charlotte and Carrie, who have commented above, have blogrolls that I have made frequent use of. There is so much out there, it’s hard to know where to begin, but the joy of discovering a great blog is worth the occasional sensation of feeling overwhelmed.
I recently put together a book blog/site for girls. Not so much a review of the books, but a way for the girls to start communicating about what is happening in the books we are reading. Check it out and read along if you get a chance.
