Spread the Love Linky – February 22


It’s been a quite week. I spent most of yesterday running errands. In the night, we sat down to watch Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, a movie I’ve wanted to see ever since we went to Burj Khalifa. The movie was average in terms of story, but the stunts especially the ones on top of Burj Khalifa were mind-blowing.

Today, I am trying to plough through Lajja by Taslima Nasrin, which is a bit heavy-going. Anyway, on to this week’s link-up.

Last week’s most clicked on link last week was Karen’s discussion post on book reviews, and whether it is possible to have a book blog without reviews. It’s a pretty interesting post, and there’s a lot of lively discussion going on over there, so if you haven’t read her post yet, click on over here.

Where do you stand on book reviews? I know I still enjoy some of them, but there’s no denying that the format of the book review does seem a little tired these days.

This week’s link-up is now active. You can sign up below this post.

Also do make sure you follow my blog to get link-up notifications. Follow buttons are on the sidebar.


How it works: Basically, you pick one of your favorite posts, from the past week or even earlier, and link up. Go check out some of the other interesting posts featured in the link-up.

I”ll promote my favorite posts through Twitter and Pinterest. I’ll also feature the most clicked-on link the following week. And you can grab a button to help Spread the Love and brag if you’ve been featured, too!

  • I would find it hard to imagine book blogging altogether without reviews. I love to write them, but only if I feel I have something original to say, and especially if I’m passionate about the book and want everyone to know about it. And I appreciate the recommendations I have read on other blogs, that have led me to books I would not have discovered otherwise. But I like reading and writing other kinds of posts too. There’s room for diverse tastes in the blogosphere, thank goodness.

      @loryhess:disqus I find it hard to read a book blog without reviews either. I really think they have value far beyond comments and are more timeless. While I like discussion posts, they are usually only relevant for a short period of time.
