There is an enormous amount of book related blogs and links out there; and it’s easy to feel a bit like drowning when I decide to go forth and expand my Google Reader list. ┬íPillaging Blogrolls! is going to be an occasional series of posts where, well, I pillage the blog rolls of some of my favorite bloggers.

Most recently I “borrowed” A Guy’s Moleskine Notebook’s blog roll to discover some new material. A Guy’s Moleskine Notebook was a recent discovery for me as well, and he’s proven to be an interesting and articulate blogger – definitely a blog that I watch for updates.

I’ve been plugging away at Adventures in Reading for what will soon be a year and I have been having a terrific time at it, and most of the credit has to go to all of the other book and reading bloggers I’ve discovered. So with perfect timing (though I’m running a bit late myself!) The Hidden Side of a Leaf is kicking off the first Weekly Geeks theme to discover new blogs.

Kay’s Bookshelf is a blog after my own heart. As I often suffer from rather limited Internet time it can be difficult making it through long and involved reviews (though hello, I’m entirely guilty of this myself), but Kay provides brilliant information and in a succinct layout. Definitely a blog I will be returning to.

The mood and tone of The Ax For the Frozen Sea’s posts – I love it.

When I stopped in at Trish’s Reading Nook I first scanned the most current posts and thought: Hey, she’s read every book I’ve picked up at work and thought could be interesting. Part of my attraction to book bloggers is to find bloggers with similar (though not too similar) tastes and I dare say that Trish has a great attraction to books and a riveting manner of describing her reading experience.

Though Books I Done Read was not on Dewey’s list, I must confess that this has to be one of my favorite blogs to read. The blogger writes with such honesty and flavor. I confess that this is one of the few blogs that I read every word of each post. The blog’s sensational and smart.
