Weekly Geeks 2009-01

This week's question: In the spirit of the amazing community building that Dewey was so good at, tell us about your favorite blogs, the ones you have bookmarked or subscribe to in your Google Reader, that you visit on a regular basis. Tell us what it is about these blogs that you love, that inspire or educate you or make you laugh. Be sure to link to them so we can find them too.

I thought I would highlight a few blogs that I adore:

Here, There, & Everywhere (Deslily)--I'm sure I'm not alone here. She's got quite a community of friends built around her. But But I just can't get enough of her!!! Check out this post...for example...

Book Nut (Melissa)--I love Melissa, I do! I definitely feel we're kindred spirits. And every time I see she's got a new post up, I get so excited :) I love her honesty too. Sometimes she can write the best reviews. One of those places where even if you don't think you'll end up reading the book yourself, you just have to read her review to see what she thought of it.

Reviewer X (Steph)-- Chances are you already love her--her honesty, her snarkiness, her brilliance--all make her extremely popular...but if you haven't come across her blog don't know what you're missing! Add her to your blog reader today :)

My Friend Amy You're bound to have heard of Amy already. But what can I say? She's so good, you just have to include her in a list like this. I love her Faith 'n Fiction feature. She has almost single-handedly inspired me to read more Christian books.

Nothing of Importance (Debi) I don't know quite how to explain how much I love Debi. I just do. She just has a way about her; it sounds silly to say she's special and one-of-a-kind but she is. She really is. And I'm so glad that she's part of the blogging community.

Maw Books (Natasha) Awesome. That's the only way to describe her and her blog. I envy her, I do. She always has the best interviews, best contests, best reviews.

I could probably least twenty more. Maybe even fifty more. I have a long, long, long list of blogs that I read and follow. Some I've followed for over two years. Some I've just followed for a week or two. But I love reading and discovering new blogs.

Oh just made me cry. Honest, you did. Oh course, in a very nice way. Thank you! Those words would have been special coming from anyone, but coming from someone I adore as much as you...well, I just can't tell you how much it means to me! And you better know how much I love your blog, too...yes, for the book reviews, and the insightful posts, and the interviews, but very most of all for the woman behind the blog!

Steph said...

Omg! This is so special, Becky. Thanks so much! This means a lot, ESPECIALLY coming from you. Je t'adore <3

Hi Becky. I decided to join in. You have some great links. I enjoy reading a few of them already. Thanks.


Melissa said...

Aw shucks, Becky. Thanks. And I'll have to check out some of the other links, too.

This was a great post. I'm always looking for more book blogs and this helped me out!

You have some great blogs on that list...I can't believe that's the first time I've visited Deslily!

Oh Becky. I am the one that is in envy of you. I wish I could read as much as you, review as much as you, and I can not believe the interviews you do. And let's not even count the number of books I've read because of you. So thank you for your kind words. They have touched me.

Just letting you know I've dropped via Weekly Geeks Becky. Your main blog roll gets longer too :-)

DesLily said...

wow, thank you so much Becky!
I will never know how you read so many books and have the time left to write about them all!!

Amy said...

Thank you so much Becky!!!! I am so completely honored and I'm not just saying that. I think you are incredible...I have no idea how you do all that you do. And I envy your writing. :)
And thanks for putting me in such fantastic company. I love all of these bloggers, too.
