Dewey came up with an idea a couple of weeks ago which takes the idea of participating in challenges (because goodness only knows that book bloggers love challenges!) and making the challenges only slightly linked to reading! This week is the first challenge week and it is to discover some new blogs from amongst the participants who have signed up to join in. You can get a much better explanation than that by reading Dewey's post.
One of the great things about book bloggers is that there are always new blogs to check out. It took me a while to narrow down my choices but in the end these are the following new to me blogs that I have chosen to spotlight:
Thinking of - http://jellyjules.com/
I chose this blog because they have recently read a book that I read as well - Pictures of Hollis Woods. The main difference is that where she has already put a review up, I am still um...working...on mine!
Reader Rabbit - http://readerrabbit.blogspot.com/
Chose this for no other reason than I liked the title! It is however also cool that it is run by two teenage sisters who share the reviewing duties!
A Girl Walks Into a Bookstore - http://agirlwalksintoabookstore.blogspot.com/
Another great blog name!
Some Reads - http://somereads.blogspot.com/
Chose this one because her latest review is of Stardust by Neil Gaiman which is a book that I currently have out from the library to read in due course.
Bookworms and Tea - http://bookwormsandtea.blogspot.com/
Loved the header at this one!
So there we have it! First post for Weekly Geeks!
