Blog Related News

The March Blogger Book Club selection has been chosen by Joe of Adventures in Reading. The book club will be held from March 9 - 15 and the book is The Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler. I've been wanting to read a book by this author for a while so I plan to get the book and read it before that week. Hopefully I'll have better luck with that one than I did Schismatrix Plus (which I tried to read twice and then gave up on since I was already in the middle of one book and didn't have a lot of time for reading at the moment anyway). For bloggers who want to participate, all you have to do is read the book, put up a review during that week, and link to/discuss the other reviews. It's rather informal.

Mulluane from Dragons, Heroes and Wizards recently proposed setting up an SFF Blog Forum. The Dragon Federation has already been set up and this blog and many others have their own sections. After I get caught up with reviews, I'll have to spend some more time over there.

Tia at Fantasy Debut suggested holding a Book Blogger Convention and set up a Book Blogger Convention Blog for discussing the idea. It would be a lot of fun, but I suspect it will be too far away for me to go even if there is an East Coast and West Coast con. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on it, though - just in case.

I spend a lot of time during he past days on The Dragon Federation.
It's a good forum and still growing.

So I look forward to meet you there.
