So this week we are being challenged to encourage others to leave a message via comments or email when they have reviewed the same book as ourselves. I think this is a great idea. It’s great to have a way to connect to others that have posted the same review as you so that the readers can get all the opinions out there about the given book. Once you’ve left the comment the owner of the blog will then create a link at the end of the blog for you wonderful readers to go directly to the post of the reviewed book.
What a perfect idea and I really want to participate in this. I already try to link if I know someone has reviewed the same book as me but I obviously miss a number of them. So, here’s what I would like; if you have reviewed a book that is the same as me please send me an email about the book that you have reviewed and the link to that review and I will place the links at the end of the post. Since I haven’t done on a lot of posts on this site yet feel free to let me know about any book I have reviewed to date on this site. The email address you can send your requests to is thatsthebook (at) gmail (dot) com. I’m looking forward to seeing how many of you have read the same books as me.
I also wanted to let everyone know about a rather amusing name that the group of book bloggers have been given. My girlfriend (Charlotte) keeps talking about how large our book blogging community is and thinks it might be a little scary. As a result she has come to refer to us as “The Book Blog Mafia” or “Bblofia” for short. I loved this and thought I’m going to create a button for this (I’ve never done this before so it could take a while). So, you can keep your eyes peeled for that button. I thought others of you may like this so the button will be for those of you wishing to be members of the Bblofia!
I also wanted to update everyone on an earlier post, Article and a Contest. If those of you have not read it yet I’m going to be adding a new feature to this blog which will be a discussion on book related news. I’m looking for a name and there will be a prize for the winning name. I haven’t anounced the prize yet but here it is. I’ll be giving away a gift certificate to any online bookstore they use at a $25 value. The contest will close the end of May to give everyone plenty of time to think of a name that would like to. Please if you think of a name post it on the original post.
