Armchair BEA: Some of My Favorite Blogs & Bloggers

Many Armchair BEA participants are interviewing each other today but I missed the cut-off to take part in the interviews. The alternative today is to make a list of some of our favorite blogs and bloggers- so here I go.
  1. Lakeside Musing is one I've been reading almost from the beginning. I love JoAnn's easy going style and great taste in books.
  2. Nonsuch Book is one of my favorite literary-fiction blogs. Frances reads many of the same kinds of things I do and I almost always add to my wish list when I read her posts.
  3. The Crowded Leaf is another great blog covering all kinds of books. Alayne reads a nice variety of things and always has something interesting on her shelf.
  4. Dolce Bellezza is another great blog focusing literary fiction. It's also a great-looking blog and I love Meredith's recipes and personal stories, too.
  5. The Blue Bookcase is a relatively recent addition to my blogroll, another great litfic blog.
But you know what? I love all the blogs in my blogroll and lots more to boot. There are a bunch of blogs that for some reason I never got around to listing on my sidebar but I read them all the time anyway. Many of them are real-life blogging pals like Dawn of She is Too Fond of Books, Jason of Brain Candy Book Reviews and Sarah of Archimedes Forgets. Go visit all of them!

I agree about how hard it is to pick favorites...I did list a few, but then added how many new and exciting ones I keep finding every day.

Now, especially, with this Armchair BEA event, I'm discovering still more.

Thanks for sharing.

Here's MY ARMCHAIR POST

It's so hard to pick favorites, isn't it?? That's always the hardest interview question for me. I thought I'd get away without making a list this event, but then my interviewer asked me :-)

Some of the bloggers you list are already in my GR, but I'll definitely be checking out the others!

Bellezza said...

Sweet Marie, thank you for listing me amongst your favorites. I didn't write this post, being busy teaching all day, but you are surely a blessing to me as well! XOXO

Rayna Eliana said...

Nice links...I will check them out.
