Blog Friday

Welcome to those on the Hop. Anyone using two legs is banned -- hopping only, please.

Take a look around. The most recent review was on The Picture of Dorian Gray, there's some photo business going on, some notes from the book front, and a recent update on my TYSIC. Upcoming reviews include The Road, some Agatha Christie, some C.S. Lewis, something Wodehouse-related, and a lot of new things! Exciting.
Say hello in a comment, or find an old post on one of your favourite books, or become a follower. As the young people say -- Be Here Or Be Near.

Last week I gave out a prize to seven of my favourite blogs, and I promised to talk about each one briefly on future Blog Fridays. This week I choose...

Lauren Learns The Hard Way

You can expect weekly posts, so keeping up with it won't take over your life. You can also expect to laugh like a Laughing Thing (technical term) at open letters to Bert and Ernie, the life of an abused barista ('I don't hate people, some of my best friends are people') and the masterpiece that is God's voicemail service.

I wish I could make those sort of posts. I've been following it for a couple of months now, and it is consistently great. I laugh hard at every post, and you probably will too. Try it.

It's also the least followed/commented/universally-loved blog on my list, which is genuinely silly. There are some really interesting nooks dotted around the internet, and it highlights that problem about the web: it's a case of who shouts the loudest, not who shouts the funniest things.
