As you all may have noticed, I just started a 31 Day Blog Challenge. This is my first time doing one of these linky party things. In fact, I was just planning on blogging for 31 days by myself, but my lovely wife let me know about this huge linky party being hosted by a few of the blogs she reads regularly. I really didn’t know what to expect, but as of this evening, it looks like there’s over 650 people participating in this challenge. That being said, there’s a lot of great blogs participating. While I know it’ll probably be hard for me to check out every single blog, I wanted to make sure to call out some that really catch my eye. If you want to check out all 650ish blogs (which I recommend because my guess is we don’t all have the same tastes, right?), here’s a direct link to get you there… Complete List of the 31 Dayers
While you’re here, I also wanted to call out the first blog that really caught my eye. As a huge fan of books and the printed word, I’m always looking for new places to get recommendations. The name of this blog (Quirky Bookworm) immediately caught my eye because my reading tastes aren’t necessarily main stream.
After checking out the Quirky Bookworm blog, I also found out the person hosting this blog also reviews for Shelf Awareness – an industry rag I tend to respect (they seemed to be the most respectful of Borders through the whole liquidation ordeal. I immediately was intrigued to read further.
For the month of October, Jessica (the person behind Quirky Bookworm) will be recommending 31 books to us. I don’t know about you, but I think this is an amazing idea and can’t wait to she what she has to recommend. Please feel free to check out her blog and tell her Dane sent you. Also, check back here periodically to see what other blogs I want to profile.
