I love to sit down with a good book, so I figured that there must be other bloggers with my passion for reading. A quick search on the internet sent me to some really interesting blogs all about books.
The most elaborate of them all is BookGirl's Nightstand. Just click on the reference section to check out her archives and a huge list of links to other book blogs. I was also happy to find Bookmark My Heart, A Life In Books, A High and Hidden Place and Out in the Woods. Also be sure to check out A Readable Feast at ClubMom. It is a really cool site that mixes recipes with info on lots of different childrens books.
Speaking of reading a good book, how about reading a book about reading books (are you confused yet)? Check out the memoir So Many Books, So Little Time by Sara Nelson. The author challenges herself to read a book a week for a year and then keep a journal on how the reading material intersects with her life.
Or how about The Reading Group by Elizabeth Noble? It's a work of fiction about five women, living very different lives, who meet monthly for a bookclub.
Check out this really beautiful children's book that I found in my local library last night. Please Bury Me in the Library (or Libary, as Leah calls it) is a book of poems celebrating a love of books and reading. One of my favorites from the book is below
"Great, Good, Bad"
A great book is a homing device
For navigating paradise.
A good book somehow makes you care
About the comfort of a chair.
A bad book owes to many trees
A forest of apologies.
I must stop typing now, since I need some time to read Prep tonight. Happy reading!
