I love this program, and not just because Rebecca and Karen are some of my dearest library friends and not because I am listed twice [although those are very good reasons], but because it is the only place where we, the public library workers who help leisure readers each and every day, can go to find the most relevant blogs for us.
So much of the book-centric blog-o-sphere is publisher and book store centered. This presentation is led by library people for library people. And these women are straight shooters. If the blog is listed here it is because it is well done and useful.
Please use the link to watch the presentation AND make sure you save the handout because these are all sites you will use.
