Summer 2016 on EDIWTB

I haven’t posted a lot lately, but I am definitely reading and making some plans for the blog.

This summer will mark my 10th anniversary (!) of blogging here on EDIWTB, and I want to mark the milestone by sharing some fun book-related things:

  1. Retrospectives of my favorite books and audiobooks from 10 years of reading.
  2. The possible resurrection of the EDIWTB online book club. (Trying to pick a book now…)
  3. The crowdsourced 2016 summer reading list
  4. More author Q&As
  5. Conversations with some other veteran book bloggers

Another idea I am playing with – video or audio book reviews. Would you listen to or watch a book review, rather than just reading it? I’m curious to see how this would go over. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

So keep an eye on this space for some milestone content. I’m almost done with Jennifer Close’s The Hopefuls and am 1/3 through Yaa Gaasi’s Homegoing, so I’ll have some reviews up this week and next.

Thanks for sticking with EDIWTB!

    Congrats on 10 years, and thanks for all the good recommendations you’ve given during that time–I’m looking forward to seeing your favorites! And by “seeing” I mean “reading”–given my total inability to stick with book-related podcasts, I’d have to say I’d still rather read bookish content (if I can’t discuss it in person).

    I always liked the EDIWTB book club–glad you’re looking at bringing it back!

      Thanks Florinda! We’re a go for the book club! Details to come. (You may already have a copy from BEA…) Would you be up for a Q&A as another veteran book blogger?

        I’d love to do a Q&A–thank you for asking! And I’ll watch for the book-club announcement.

    Congrats! What a milestone. I am so happy you are thinking of bringing back the bookclub, I loved it and have missed it. Please, please do it! I’d be happy to help in any way. Audio would be great too, , I love audio.

    Thanks for a great 10 years. I have read a number of books I never would have looked at if not for this blog. for example… I am 3/4 of the way through The Heart right now!
