101 BOOK BLOGS YOU NEED TO READ

Pardon my immodesty here but The Bookman was mightily chuffed to find his blog in this list, at number 85 !!
Check out the site, only when you have an hour or two to spare though because one can easily become severly distracted by the astonishing amount of comment, views and reviews that are out there.

Good on you, Bookman! Your blog is compulsory reading for me at least once a day!

Well deserved - you are an integral part of the literary life of NZ and it's fantastic to have someone who cares so passionately about both local and international literature and it has been a huge thrill for me to be able to participate sometimes doing reviews.

You desreve a medal or a gong or similar Bookman. Thank you for so tirelessly keeping us up to date with the book world both here and abroad.

As a rural library user who has nothing to do with the book trade apart from borrowing and occasionally buying the books you talk about on your blog may I add my thanks for the great job you do. And soon we will be able to get Broadband out here which means your blog will be even better as presently it takes an age sometimes to download. But it is worth waiting for. My warm thanks to you.
