As if I don't already have enough to do...
I am really excited about the newly announced Whitney Awards finalists. I have not personally read each of the finalists, but I'm planning to do so as fast as I can. I'm very interested to see if I agree with the Whitney committee on what makes a good book. I look forward to seeing the winners in March.
This effort is really inspirational, in fact, it inspired a new blog:
This is an interactive, reader-participation blog that allows you to comment and rate individual books.
Any book that is eligible for the 2008 Whitney Awards can receive a spotlight post on this new blog.
Please help me get started on the 2008 list by sending me book referrals as they are released.
I will continue to post the list of eligible books in the sidebar here as well.
