FANTASTIC BOOK BLOGS I FOLLOW

List in constant evolution…
Last update: 11/28/2015

As I follow tons of other book blogs, I thought it would be better to list them here than on my sidebar…
When the blog title has a subtitle, I added it.
I also highlighted some special features I enjoy, such as some reading Challenges.
The starred blogs I enjoy extremely.
I followed most of these blogs through Google Reader, then Taptu, and now Bloglovin! Lots I follow also through Facebook, Twitter, GFC, Google +, WordPress, and a few through email.

If you see yourself on the list, would you mind returning the favor? Thanks
