Discovering Some New Book Blogs

I found these on Black Looks (she has an extensive list of links, btw).

First is the blog belonging to author Tayari Jones. I read a profile on her in Essence magazine sometime last year and shortly after read her book The Untelling, which I thought was very good. I am looking forward to reading her first novel, Leaving Atlanta, whenever I get my hands on a copy.

Colored Girls is another book-themed site (also discovered on Black Looks), but this one devoted to female writers of color.

Hi There, What's your address? I'll send you a copy of Leaving Atlanta... Did you know I used to live in Nigeria?

Thank you, Tayari! I'm so touched. I've sent you a reply already.
