Check Out These Bloggers

The last few weeks I've posted about other bloggers you guys should check out.  My original intention was to post this stuff on Mondays but the second I try to give myself some sort of schedule I break it.  But I had just finished What's My Name, Fool? and wanted to get my thoughts down and out there.  Now I know I'm obviously the main voice you listen to when trying to decide what else to read, so I didn't want to make you go too long without telling you what to do.  I'm kind like that.  Anyway, here are a couple more blogs you should check out. 

Coffee Tale Reviews - I just recently started following Ms. C's blog but I've already gone through her past posts and found interesting topics.  She reviews some contemporary novels, some classics and she includes some cookie recipes which I've yet to try but look delicious.  You should check out her latest entry Hitler's Private Library and what our library collections say about us if anything.

The Reading Ape - Check out this blog if you are looking for intelligent, interesting, well-thought out posts about books and the book world.  He's had a couple posts recently about Amazon questionable business practices that make me reconsider where my book money goes and also tackles topics about the gender divide in the book blogging universe.  I have a general tendancy to enjoy posts about general topics but his review of The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake appealed to me and gave me a better idea of what to expect with this book (or not in my case since I don't plan on reading it) than other reviews have.

The Sassy Curmudgeon - Una isn't actually a book blogger and at this point I can't even remember how I stumbled onto her blog, but I am loving it. I do know the first entry I read was about her trying out the Wine Rack, which is a sports bra with special pouches to hold a bottle of wine.  Wheee! Plus Bill watches over her blog at the bottom of the page.  Double score! (I know his name is actually Martin Starr but he'll always be Bill from Freaks and Geeks to me.)

Enjoy!  And if you know of any other awesome blogs leave a comment and tell us about them!
