The big news for May was participating in Armchair BEA. I had a lot of fun and learned a few things plus I had a great time meeting new bloggers. I’m really looking forward to applying some of the tips I’ve picked up along the way.
What else is new? Well, I’ve been talking to Lauren on and off and we are introducing a new aspect to Lit, etc regarding reviews especially those that fall in the 4/5 line rating. Some 5 star books just go beyond a rating and I want to distinguish those that stand out. The same goes for a 4 star rating. You’ll see a few reviews tagged as “excellence” or “recommended.” This basically means: this book, in our own opinion, is one you have to read. At the end of year, we’ll crown one of these book of the year. Keep your eyes out for reviews with those added to the tags.
Here’s a recap of what you may have missed on Literary, etc during May.
