Way back last week I had a crisis of conscience. Am I spending too much time on the Internet? Should I take an Internet hiatus? Am I potentially a crazy who cannot function face-to-face with sensible people? I decided no, probably not, and irrelevant, respectively. But I'm still not writing a round up today.
Instead, you guys are going to round up for me (what, no, this is not a gimmick because I procrastinated all week, how dare you accuse me, etc. etc.)!
I realized that I'm not spending too much time on the Internet—I might be spending too little, as I still have time to sleep. But I haven't updated my Google Reader (my tiny baby Jesus who blesses me with e-gifts) in a while, and I'm probably missing some good publishing blogs out there. So, I ask you: which blogs should I be reading? And what were your favorite publishing stories this week?
I'll incorporate the blogs and news you leave in the comments in a round up that will go up Saturday morning that you can read with your brunch-type shenanigans. Also feel free to leave comments about round up construction—would you prefer more links about industry news? About writing? About being a writer? About new (and old) sweet books and reviews of said books? I may not listen, since the Internet has stolen my social skills, but you never know.
Also, last week's contest to come up with a celebrity to endorse a book was won by bingol, who has Roman Polanski pimping Lolita. In a word: ha!
