Blogger Showcase: The Book Smugglers

Ok, one more Blogger Showcase before we return to our regular blog programming. I want to give a shout out to The Book Smugglers, because Ana and Thea have a really cool thing going. They read Romance and Speculative Fiction with a twist--they do Siskel and Ebert style reviews. (Oops! I just dated myself. It's Ebert and Roeper now.)

Their Inagural Post explains the concept of a book smuggler, and it outlines their goals for their blog. They don't always do joint reviews, just once a month as a Book of the Month selection. Their latest Book of the Month was for a historical fiction but back in July, they did one on Neil Gaiman's American Gods.

Plus, they do all kinds of posts on science fiction and fantasy on TV and at the movies, plus comics and graphic novels. They have author chats and reviews galore, and both are really in-depth. I highly recommend that you give The Book Smugglers a permanent home in either your feed reader or your blogroll (or both!).

I agree. I wish blogging had been around fifteen years ago, when I had more spare time.
