Book Blogger Hop August 12th - August 18th: Martina Navratilova Has 167 Tennis Titles

Book Blogger Hop

Jen at Crazy for Books restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another, but then couldn't continue, so she handed the hosting responsibilities off to Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them.

This week Billy asks: Do any of your book club members have a blog? Do you compare notes if they do?

The closest thing to a book club that I am a member of is the Washington Science Fiction Association, which isn't really a book club per se, but does, among other things, put on an annual convention oriented towards written science fiction. Most of the members are avid readers, and there are book discussions at most meetings, so there is a definite bookish bent to the organization, but it isn't explicitly a book club - it is a science fiction club that has a lot of members who like books.

I only know of one fellow WSFAn who has a blog: David Keener, but his blog is generally more focused on the business of writing and selling science fiction stories than it is on reading and reviewing books. Several members of WSFA write reviews for SF Revu (I have as well), although that is definitely not a personal blog, and there really isn't any opportunity to "compare notes" regarding reviews.

  1. The WSFAn sounds like a really neat organization! I bet the meetings are very interesting. Thank you for sharing! I hope you have a wonderful week.

    1. @Literary Feline: They are a great organization, with lots of members who are devoted science fiction fans. One of the big events of the year for the organization is CapClave, a literary-oriented science fiction convention. WSFA organizes the event, and has put it on every year since 2001.
