BookBlog [dot net]

The Gender Genie via Instapundit brought me to BookBlog [dot net] which describes itself as follows:

We're basically a book club that meets once a month to discuss a book. Unlike a regular book club, our discussions are all done online.

Each month, a member volunteers to moderate by choosing a book and beginning the discussion by posting a question. Members then comment on that question while the moderator pops in and out to keep the discussion going.

Discussions are held during the last full week of each month and future moderators and book selections are posted to a sidebar on the home page.

Sound interesting? Want to join? Send an e-mail to mistress at bookblog dot net.

William Gibson


I suppose the first writer all internet users should take a look at is

William Gibson

who coined the term "cyberspace" and whose futuristic novels, including the famous Neuromancer, have won many literary awards. As written at that last linked page:

"Here is the novel that started it all, launching the cyberpunk generation, and the first novel to win the holy trinity of science fiction: the Hugo Award, the Nebula Award and the Philip K. Dick Award. With Neuromancer, William Gibson introduced the world to cyberspace--and science fiction has never been the same."

Gibson's blog is also one of the most popular on the internet, Googling in the top 10 for "blog".

Guardian's Top 100 greatest novels of all time


Roger L. Simon: Mystery Novelist and Screenwriter: and one of Hollywood's best read blogs, refers to the
"THE BIG 100"
writing
"A week or so ago the Guardian gave forth its latest list of the 100 greatest novels of all time."

Well, look at that list of books and you can understand why
we also have two blogs related to
Nr.1 ranked Don Quixote - at WordPundit
and
Nr. 4 ranked Gulliver's Travels - at YahooPundit

If you are looking for books you should have read, but hav not yet done so - this is a good place to start.
