State of the blog

If you haven't already, head over to Return of the Reluctant, Chekhov's Mistress, The Elegant Variation, Confessions of an Idiosyncratic Mind, GalleyCat, and Beatrice for great coverage of this weekend's BookExpo America held in New York. On the whole, very amusing takes on the ("not grotesque") "book business".

Such committed blogging underscores the modest aspirations of this current going concern, but it's a credit of the litblogosphere that small cyberspaces for favorite things (such as yours truly) can coexist with the more professional affairs. It's a privilege to be part of the unending conversation about literature.

Meanwhile, over at ReadySteadyBlog, Mark Thwaite speaks up for the British litblogs. Hear, hear!

And for good measure, Ms. Croc reviews various films screened at the Seattle International Film Festival.
