Which blogs do you like that are not about children's literature? Liz. B. at A Chair, A Fireplace, and A Tea Cozy sent a meme my way with that question in mind. Name five, she said.
Okay! Here are some blogs that I enjoy.
Maud Newton: books, literature
Chekhov's Mistress: books, literature
About Last Night (Terry Teachout): theater, culture, classical music, art, music, movies, books, Manhattan
Quiet Bubble: books, movies, comics, jazz
Filmi Geek: Bollywood reviews
The various blogs at the Jackson (Miss.) Free Press, an alternative weekly newspaper
Yes, that's six+ blogs. Why stop at five!
So, what's a meme? If you are new to blogging, you may not be aware of this term, which sounds like the name of a poodle or something lifted from the collected works of a literary theorist. A meme is a set of questions that gets passed around blogs, the equivalent of a chain letter—but more fun! Why more fun? Because you're not in for years of bad luck if you ignore it. I also like the occasional meme because I get to find out about new (to me) blogs by reading everyone's lists.
So, what non-children's-book blogs do you read? I am tagging the following blogs and everyone else who wants to answer: This Just In, Kelly Fineman, A Fondness for Reading, Readathon, Whimsy Books, and Educating Alice. If you don't want to post a meme, don't worry about it. If you do, consider yourself tagged.
Happy Saturday to one and all.
