In this latest book blogger profile, I chat to historical fiction and travel enthusiast The Lit Bitch about King Edward, Harry Potter and sinking your teeth into a good reading challenge.
Continuing my journey through the secret world of book bloggers, I spoke to Rob Burdock – also known as Rob Around Books – about Just William, eBooks and the Father of History.
The internet is full of book bloggers, passionate readers who dedicate vast swathes of time to promoting books to the general public purely because they can. I thought it was time to meet some of them. This week, I chat to Lyndsay Wheble, who writes about all things bookish (including her own fiction) on Tolstoy is my Cat.
There are approximately 8 zillion trillion gillian book blogs on the internet – but how do you know whether the reviews on there will actually match your own tastes? I figured one way might be to find out a little bit more about the people writing them. This is why I now present The Book Blogger Files – a series of interviews with the mysterious literary enthusiasts behind the keyboards. First up, freelance essayist and creative writer Adam Burgess, also known as Roof Beam Reader (the name is a reference to a story by J.D.Salinger).
If you are reading this, I am probably in Berlin – or elsewhere in mainland Europe. I have scheduled posts to cover the time I am away, and I’d urge you to keep coming back to read them all because there are some corkers in there. Such as:
