15 Day Book Blogger Challenge, Day 3

Today's question is: Who are your blogging BFFs?

To be honest, I'm not in love with this question!  I will try.  But I don't like to single people out (and not others)...

However, I have met LOTS of wonderful people through this book blogging gig!   So here are a few.

Amy at Book Musings reads great books and is forever inspiring me with ambition to read some of them too.  Plus she's a fellow homeschooling mom and all.

Emily at Classics and Beyond is another classics lover, and I just always like to see what she says.   She is a college student, lucky thing (I really liked college) and usually finds way more to say about literature than I can.

Eva at A Striped Armchair hasn't been around as much lately, hopefully because she is busy traveling and having an amazing life.  Her blog is a treasure trove of amazing and unusual books, and she has put many great titles onto my list!  I think she reads more than anyone I've ever met.

Adriana at Classical Quest and the WEM Ladies at A Classic Case of Madness are my WEM buddies.  They challenge me to read the books and dig into them deeply instead of forgetting about them when they're done.

Jenny at Reading the End is hilarious and insightful and a fellow DWJ-adorer, as is Kristen M. at We Be Reading, who shares many of my tastes and hosts the best month of the year, DWJ March.  These two people go together in my head, so I've put them together here too.

Ekaterina at In My Book gives me recommendations about Russian and Eastern European books, and listens to me when I tell her to give Terry Pratchett another try.

Petya at the Migrant Bookclub does not post often, but it is always great.  Plus she finds the best photographs!

A Petya-selected photograph.  See?

It's interesting to me that these people are all women, and the vast majority of blogs that I read are also written by women.  Is it me?  Is it that book blogs are nearly all by women?  Both maybe.  We probably need more guys in the mix.  Come on men, join the crowd, you know you want to!

I'm so honored to be included. :) And there definitely should be more male book bloggers!

Hello! I'm glad to be mentioned :) And I'm already following most of the others :) Yes, males are rare here... I wonder why?

Aw! I'm thrilled to be included and delighted to be linked in your mind to lovely Kristen. :)

My head has been elsewhere and I am just seeing your note. How sweet and also, what an honor to be included in such a great list.

I not only read mostly female blogs but I've also noticed that my FAVORITE authors are all women. Hmm.
