A Brief History of Book Blogs

December 6, 2006 | 2

Genevieve Tucker, the blogger behind Reeling and Writhing (formerly known as You Cried for Night) has penned an article for The Australian about book blogs that covers briefly the medium’s numerous squabbles and scuffles (have there really been that many? I blame Ed) in what amounts to a history of the nascent “litblogosphere.” A handy sidebar of prominent litblogs is included, though, sadly, The Millions has been left off. (Perhaps that will serve as fodder yet another litblog battle? Nah, I’m used to it.)

created The Millions and is its publisher. He and his family live in New Jersey.


  1. Oh, Max, I am sorry. Oz is a big country with a weeny Internet reading population and suffers from information overload. I had to keep it simple. (Aren't you chaps in the LitBlog Co-op? I thought I checked to see if you were.)
    Very good of you to link, even so – it's simply an introduction to the world of litblogs for the uninitiated, but it was good of you to read it.

  2. No problem Genevieve. I am in the LBC, so you've got us covered there. Enjoyed the article, though, and good job for raising the awareness of litblogs for readers down under.
