Favorite Book Newsletters, Search Sites, Blogs.

I've mentioned it before and will again because the October issue of the Longitude News seems especially full of interesting things.  Primarily a source of travel books, this issue also contains items from the Man Booker Prize list as well as one I hadn't heard of, the Dolman Travel Book of the year:

Joanna, I just checked your links. Very good resources. I can see why someone on another thread thought you were a librarian.

Captain, I confess, I worked in a library as a cataloger but was not a "librarian", a term for someone with a library degree.  The post to which you refer was, well...I'll leave it there.  Just call me a book junkie.  That's the real truth.
