Good moring all!
I have some interesting things from around blog-land this week.
April seems to have been the month for big, controversial discussions amog book bloggers. I blame Twitter. One thing that came up this last week deals with how negative of a review is too negative and whether or not publishers should cut off bloggers who have too many negative reviews. Trish from Hey Lady, Whatcha’ Reading? and Amy of My Friend Amy both took different and well thought-out positions on this.
Reviews and Authors
Shelly over at Write for a Reader had a great guest post this week from J.W. Nicklaus in which he details the top 3 misconceptions about being published. No, being published does not equal instant wealth and fame, says Nicklaus. Go over and check out the other misconceptions.
Over at Beth Fish Reads, Beth reviewed “A Cold Day for Murder,” the first book in a mystery series. Read Beth’s review to find out why she things it works better as a novel than as a mystery thriller.
First for the bookish giveaways. Carrie at Books and Movies is giving away six different books to celebrate moving to her new blog home. At Booking Mama, Julie is giving away two board books to three different winners.
From the Mommy blogs, The Full Mommy has been reviewing Seventh Generation products all week in honor of Earth Day and they are giving away each of the products reviewed, as well as a grand prize kit. There isn’t really a single post I can send you to, so just visit The Full Mommy and read the posts from the last week.
