An excellent Book Rant by a new blogger, real-life friend (of a friend of a friend-type thing, but she’s very cool so check her new blog out), and English teacher on a blog otherwise devoted to sewing and knitting.
Bill Cotter’s Book Notes music playlist for his debut novel (and TOB 2010 contender), Fever Chart.

Tournament of Books 2010 Contest Update: I am still waiting for the brackets. The website indicates it will not be up until March, so I am trying to decide what to do to give entrants sufficient time to mull their picks. The timing of the brackets will impact the exact nature of the contest. But I will hold a TOB 2010 contest. Stay tuned…
[UPDATE: The TOB 2010 brackets will be released Friday. I will post a link as quickly as my schedule allows and provide contest rules then. Good luck!]
