i'm a big fan of the beachwood reporter's book section, and sometimes the new york times book blog, papercuts, has some good stuff.

Martin (martinmiw) | 2 comments The Amazon.com blog is actually very good. http://www.amazon.com/gp/blog/A287JD9...

Also, the Powells bookstore blog has lots of authors come in as guest-bloggers, which is sometimes interesting. http://www.powells.com/blog/

The "Critical Mass" blog is about literary criticism, which I find interesting most of the time (at least when it's not just repetitive hand-wringing over the state of our modern-day culture). http://bookcriticscircle.blogspot.com/

Finally, I second The Millions, which is both great and written by guys I knew in high school! http://www.themillionsblog.com/

Judy"Intergalactic Bookworm" | 4 comments I have to check Literago out. This is really the only book blog I belong to. I belong to a lot of Yahoo! book groups on various topics and authors.

My favorite on line public domain site is Project Gutenberg. Does anyone know of other sites like Project Gutenberg?

Check out Golden Rule Jones. It's an excellent blog of "literary events and topics with a Chicago angle."

Beverly | 3 comments Bartleby.com has a lot of classic texts, including poetry online, but not as many as Gutenberg.
