Book Blogger Appreciation Week! Monday: First Treasure


Monday—First Treasure
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.

The blog I want to tell you about is Lizok's Bookshelf, written by translator and Russophile extraordinaire Lisa, who I was lucky enough to meet at this year's Book Blogger Con. Lisa reads a huge amount of Russian books, many in the original Russian, and writes wonderful reviews and opinions about them. She also shares news and links; go to her site now and you'll see awards news, reviews of current books, links to her other book blog, Lisa's Other Books, and more. I keep coming back to Lisa's blogs because of the intelligence and thought that go into her posts, and because I'm totally, completely envious of her command of Russian language and literature!

I'll be participating in most of this week's themed posts for BBAW, and doing one of my own at some point this week, too. Stay tuned!
