I don’t have many links for you today – it’s been a busy week – but they’re good!
~ A columnist for Santa Cruz News pissed off a lot of book bloggers with her column Book Expo’s Sorry Turn. To quote:
Book blogging has become a subculture whose members are mostly women between 20 and 50 years old, often known as “mommy bloggers” because they are housewives who blog about romance novels, horror/vampire stories and paranormal novels.
As a housewife – homeschooling mom, no less – and book blogger between the ages of 20 and 50, I really wanted to write a response. I was too busy this week, though, so I’ll leave you with these fantastic responses from Laura at I’m Booking It, Florinda at The 3 R’s Blog, and Jennifer at The Literate Housewife Review. There are also a lot of great responses from familiar names in the comments section of the original article.
