Karena (karenafagan) Since we started the CWAtC blog we are even more interested in book blogs than usual. If you post your literary blog here, we'll link to it on ours!

If you like ours, make sure you follow us! Comment! You know we live for discussion! AND you can also find our podcast here if you voted "Haven't, but I'm planning to" on our poll.

message 8: by Karena (new)

Karena (karenafagan) Added! I'm still looking at the ones that aren't by our members, but if you're a member I added you! If you can add in return, we' appreciate it. It's less about the book club, with wider margins on all things bookish.

message 10: by [deleted user] (new)

I have a new blog: The Literary Boutique, a chapter by chapter critique of literature.

message 21: by Sasha (new)

Sasha Newborn (BirdieQ) | 10 comments My Book Doc blog ( is all about writing, publishing, my own history and current planning (plotting, really) in this changing industry around books.
My latest venture is an online litmag called TimeWell ( as in "time well spent" -- referring to the classics, many of which I republish). If you write (or draw), send me your stuff. TimeWell mixes classic texts with contemporaries (that's you).

message 25: by Michael (new)

Michael Power | 1 comments I'm a literary author who's also interested in music, hence my blog: Words & Music. I don't know if you can consider any of it classic but I think I've got the "without all the class" part down.

message 26: by Liz (last edited Dec 21, 2013 02:38AM) (new)

Liz (misscmyk) I run a literary blog with editors giving out free feedback and advice for every submission!

We've been focussing on literary fiction, poetry, prose, memoirs, essays and loads more. We're also introducing a writing/editing/publishing advice part to the site.

It's undergoing a redesign, due to be launched in the new year :)

(we're also accepting submissions for both the litblog and advice page)

Fariba (fariba33) My blog Exploring Classics explores English and French literary classics. I am currently also reading through the list of Newbery Medal winners. Both children's and adult classics are fair game.

I recently read and reviewed Moby-Dick:

message 43: by Jim (new)

Jim (_jimnelson_) Hello,

I just recently joined this group and wanted to share a new blog project I'm working on, "Twenty Writers, Twenty Books" where I discuss books that left a strong impression on me and influenced my own writing.

So far I've written about B. Traven's The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Haruki Murakami's Underground, and Studs Terkel's Working. I plan on adding a new entry about once a month or so until I'm completed.

You can find the index at My own books are also listed on the site.

Hope you enjoy it!

-- Jim

message 46: by Lidiana (new)

Lidiana Hello everyone... Hope my message finds you well...

So, I hope it is not a problem that I use this place to tell you about this new group I formed. Aside from being a bookworm, David Bowie has been my greatest idol since I was a child. The news of his death was devastating, but I decided to make a book club in his honor.

As many of you may know, he was a bookaholic. A few years ago he made this list of his 100 must-read books, and there are several literary references in his work. So, the idea of the group is to tackle all this readings that inspired him.

If you are a Bowie admirer or if you are interested in more quality readings, please join us:

Feel free to share this message with someone you think will enjoy the David Bowie's Reading Club.

Thank you all...
