Thanks for all your support of book bloggers, Jennifer!


Great article!


Out of curiosity, how did you feel about appearing in an article that purported to be about "book bloggers" but only mentioned women?

Liz B

It's a great article!

But I confess -- having been part of the children's/young adult book bloggers conference, now going on four years, it's a bit frustrating to see all this talk of "first" with no mention, ever, of childrens/young adult book blogs or bloggers. It's not just in LA Times; its in other places, as well, including people who, well, do know that the kidlitosphere exists.

Book Club Girl

Liz, I can completely understand your frustration. Have you reached out to Carolyn to see if she'd be interested in writing something about the Kidlitosphere? It's an impressive group and I was glad to learn more about it at your ALA panel. Would love to talk more about this with you off-blog.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
