Calling All Book Lovers! Onehundredonebooks is a great literary blog

Hello Book Lovers,

Thanks to WordPress’s Freshly Pressed, I had the good fortune of coming across Robert Bruce’s blog, One Hundred One Books. There’s a billion and one book blogs out there, so to say it’s a crowded market is an understatement for sure. Most of us who write about books do so out of love for literature and any contributions to the love of great books is wonderful. Some people, however, do it better than others. And I think Robert does a great job.

First of all, what appeals to me is the fact that he is working his way through a list. It makes it easy and straightforward, you know where you’re going and what you’re doing. Second of all, the list he happens to be working through is Time Magazine’s 100 Greatest Novels since 1923 (plus Ulysses), so you know that the books on this list are practically required quality reading for the literary buff.

Thirdly, Robert is a good writer AND he delivers the goods. Contrary to popular blogging norms where less is more, I’m happy to say that Robert subscribes to the belief that more is more. He writes well and reasonably comprehensively (without killing you) on a book. No 140 characters for him, although I’m sure he does that as well.

So this is what you get when you visit his list of read and ranked Times 101 books:

Quick Facts
His Thoughts
Other Stuff
Highlights
Lowlights
Memorable Line
Final Thoughts

But I can talk about this all I want. Why not take a wander over there and enjoy it for yourself.

    Whenever I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine
    however, when opening in Internet Explorer, it’s got some overlapping issues.

    I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up! Apart
    from that, wonderful blog!
