Now that Blogger evidently has quit spasming, here’s a selection of various items I haven’t had time to post or, when I did, Blogger was being uncooperative:
- An enterprising law student has compiled a collection of law review articles citing legal blogs. (Via How Appealing). And, if you must know, no, this blog did not make the list — but then I don’t consider it to be a blawg.
- Waterstone’s, the UK’s largest retail book chain, has come up with a list of 30 books that deserve to be rediscovered. I’ve actually read 10 percent of them (that sounds better than three, I thought). (Via The Literary Saloon).
- The National Book Critics Circle has launched its own blog. (Also via The Literary Saloon).
- The Locus Awards finalists have been announced. The awards are based on a Locus readers’ poll. The list, which includes awards for Best Science Fiction Novel, Best Fantasy Novel and Best First Novel, is impressive and will add to my list of books I need to read.
Reading furnishes the mind only with materials of knowledge; it is thinking makes what we read ours.
