Bookstore Blogs

I often wonder if people really, really know how totally obsessed I am with books, and anything to do with them. I spend hours reading book reviews, book recommendations, book catalogs and going to bookstores and libraries. I must say that my book buying budget is not what it used to be days, but I certainly love browsing and finding titles that I can borrow from the library.
I even love reading bookstore blogs. At the beginning of the year I started keeping a list of bookstore and publishers blogs that I came across. I am leaving out the university press blogs,which I will list in another post (those are a plethora of information as well.) What follows is a listing of those that I have found thus far. If anyone knows of any others, please let me know.

Abbeville Press-The Abbeville Manual of Style

Amazon

Atomic Books

Beacon Press-The Beacon Broadside

BookCourt

book culture

Books, Etc. and their children's literature blog

Book Passage Bookstore

Burkes Bookstore

Chronicle Books

Countryman Press

Gulf of Maine Books

Ignatius Press

Inkwell Bookstore (one of my faves)

Literary Life Bookstore & More

Maine Coast Bookshop-newsletter and blog

Overlook Press

Penguin

Powells

Raincoast Books

River Run Bookstore

Rocketship

Seal Press (groundbreaking books by women, for women)

Vroman's Bookstore (another favorite)

Fresh Eyes Now and Shelf Awareness (their archive rocks) are excellent if you want to know what's going on with books, bookstores, publishing or anything else in the book trade.

And remember Buy Books for the Holiday.

"From every book invisible threads reach out to other books; and as the mind comes to use and control those threads the whole panorama of the world's life, past and present, becomes constantly more varied and interesting, while at the same time the mind's own powers of reflection and judgment are exercised and strengthened." ~Helen E. Haines

We've got a fairly substantial list of store blogs in the sidebar at ABA Omnibus (although I discovered some new ones through your post - thanks!)
