Weekly Geeks No. 1

Hosted by Dewey of The Hidden Side of the Leaf.

Task for Week One: Discover New Blogs.

Visiting participants' blogs I've never visiting before:

  • Ann Darton at Table Talk
    (Ann's got a very pretty blog, made on a Mac.)

  • janiejane at So many book reviews...
    (janiejane loved Life As We Knew It and is hoping to participate in Becky's online book discussion in May. I picked the book up at the library and am hoping to participate too.)

  • Ravenous Reader at Bookstack
    (it appears that ravenous reader likes to post without using capital letters, just like i sometimes do!)

  • Ashleigh at Random Field Notes
    (Ashleigh, who is currently living in the UK, has a "definition" of herself in the sidebar that I loved and a fun post about Peeps. She does also blog about books.)

  • The Literate Kitten
    (The subtitle of LK's blog is "A splendiforous smorgasbordial smattering of ideas to promote literature, literacy and all things literary." How can you not love that?!)

  • Mrs S at 50 Book Challenge
    (Mrs S seems to be a busy book blogger with lots of things going on. She's also a fan of Jodi Picoult, like me.)

  • Katherine at A Girl Walks Into a Bookstore
    (Katherine has an interesting quote in her sidebar from Steve Jobs about the new Amazon Kindle product: “It doesn’t matter how good or bad the product is, the fact is that people don’t read anymore.” Well, we're showing him he's wrong, aren't we?!)

  • Kristi at Passion for the Page
    (Kristi's blog has a red roses theme - my favorite flower! I'd actually visited Kristi once before - via a link in the Spring Reading Thing - but it'll be fun to make Kristi one of my regular reads.)

Well, that's eight new book blogs for me to visit, find recommendations from, and compare notes with. Woohoo!


  1. I really thought Dewey's first "theme" for Weekly Geeks was great! So many fun places to visit out there, huh?

    Hope you enjoy Life As We Knew It...I loved that book!

  2. I haven't done this yet but I need to. Some great blogs on your list! It's always fun to discover new places.

  3. Thanks for adding me to your list :) I just visited some of the others you found and added them to my google reader... phew so many blogs so little time! *lol*

  4. Hey, there, thanks for adding my blog link! Looking forward to your visits -- and to visiting your site again.

  5. I've been missing updates from you on goodreads, so I thought I'd come on over and get some book dosing for my soul.

    I'm feeling a reading spurt comin' on!

  6. thanks for adding me to your new friends list...and yes, sometimes i like to write in all lower case. don't know why. just do :)
