New Year and New Resources

I can't tell you how much time I spend reading. I read blogs, magazines, newspapers, newsletters, email announcements and websites to keep myself informed of the latest news, reviews, events and happenings in the book world.

Over the holiday, there was a plethora of mail that had been stacked up, waiting for me to read (and discard). I browsed through it all (mostly) but was very excited to discover some interesting lists in the NAIBA Newsletter:

Beauty and the Book (Jefferson, TX)
The Bookloft (Great Barrington, MA)
Book Soup (Hollywood, CA)
Breathe Books (Baltimore, MD)
Devaney, Doak & Garrett Booksellers (Farmington, MN)
Fountain Bookstore (Richmond, VA)
McNally Robinson Booksellers (New York, NY)
Village Books (Bellingham, WA)
Wordsmiths Books (Decatur, GA)

Rachel & Benn of Atomic Books (Baltimore, MD)
Megan Sullivan of Harvard Bookstore (Cambridge MA): Bookdwarf
Lori Kauffman of Brookline Booksmith (Brookline, MA): Brookline Blogsmith
Arsen Kashkashian of Boulder Bookstore (Boulder, CO): Kash's Book Corner
Jessica Stockton Bagnulo of McNally Robinson (New York, NY): The Written Nerd
Lauretta Nagel of Constellation Books (Resisterstown, MD): Constellation Books' NEW BLOG

And because I don't have enough to do (and read), I'm always interested in discovering new sites and resources. If you're a bookseller who blogs or have a great bookstore website to share, post the link in a comment here, or send me the link directly. I'm happy to include your blog or site in a future posting.

Happy New Year!

Hi. I am subscribed to your regular newsletters and pick up many great books to read from your recos.

I just wanted to bring your attention to a site that I think is cool. We are called Saffron Tree and we came together in our love for children's book and we review many of the books that we read to our kids. I recently reviewed Yellow Umbrella after seeing the title in one of your newsletters.

Hope you'll visit and add us to your great list here!

Have a great new year!
