Weekly Geeks - January 11, 2009

This is only my second time to participate in Weekly Geeks, but I'm hoping that the beginning of the year is a great time to start. I also think it's a wonderful way to pay tribute to Dewey!

In the spirit of the amazing community building that Dewey was so good at, tell us about your favorite blogs, the ones you have bookmarked or subscribe to in your Google Reader, that you visit on a regular basis. Tell us what it is about these blogs that you love, that inspire or educate you or make you laugh. Be sure to link to them so we can find them too.

Another option: Reading goals for ’09 and wrap ups for ’08 have been pretty well covered by now on a lot of blogs and other memes. But if you haven’t done this, feel free to make that your first WG of the new year, in addition to or instead of the above.

I'm almost embarrassed to admit that I subscribe to over 200 blogs in my Google Reader so coming up with just a few favorites is really difficult for me. What I read all kind of depends on my mood that day! I'll try to list just a few of my "regulars," although I'm very worried that I'll leave out someone special!

My Friend Amy - I know I'm not alone in loving Amy and her blog. I feel blessed to have her a friend! She's just terrific -- what else is there to say?

Bermuda Onion - Kathy is also a huge reader and we have very similar taste in books. I am also very lucky to have her as one of my best blogger friends.

Book Club Girl - This is one of the very first blogs that I began following. I love her recommendations and her Blog Talk Radio Shows.

Books on the Brain - Lisa is another one of the original blogs that I followed. Her honestly about both books and her life are so refreshing. She also talked me into starting my own book blog -- I owe her a lot!!!

Devourer of Books - I love her passion for books! She's such a sweet person too.

S. Krishna's Books - Oh my gosh! Can this girl read or what? I love her reviews and get tons of book ideas from her.

The Debutante Ball - If you're not familiar with this grog of first time authors, you must check it out. Their posts are always entertaining and the books have been amazing.

I really hope I didn't leave anyone out! This list is just a very small portion of the blogs that I read each and every day! What are some of your favorite blogs?

Julie, I'm so flattered! This means so much coming from you since you have a fantastic blog - my doesn't even measure up to it. Who can we start a grog with?

Terri said...

What a great bunch of blogs. Looks like I'll be visiting a few more new to me! Thanks!

If you are embarrassed at 200, I won't even tell you how many blogs I have in my reader.

Most of those are in my reader, too. Thanks for participating in Weekly Geeks!

I subscribe to a ton of book blogs too, so don't be embarrased. :D

I've been having great fun visiting fellow Weekly Geekers and seeing how different all our blogs are.
