# Liz Tai Is a reviewer for The Star Online's Lifestyle, eCentral, and Education sections. She also blogs some of her book reviews here. She's also got pikchures of a little library of her own, little sofa and all. And yes am jeles =P
I love books. I look writing book reviews. So, I thought having a blog is a natural extension of sorts to this. In this blog, I will be putting up my book reviews, which appear on The Star and some who do not. I will also discuss other things pertaining to books, whatever it may be.
Light and easy reviews, none too pretentious or intimidating either ;D Do drop by to visit k ;D
# BicaraKu BicaraKu is another book review community, sharing the same concept as us, cept that they review mostly books in the Malay Language ;D Am ashamed to say that they're more comprehensive with their book details though like prices, publishers, etc., something we seem to overlook quite often, even after being chatised by Danny Lim. [I think its because I'm really just lazy. Shhh.]
Blog ini diwujudkan untuk mereka yang gemar membaca dan diharap dengan kewujudan blog ini, boleh la mengumpul rakan2 pembaca yg lain khasnya Malaysian. Siapa kata org Malaysia malas membaca?
Also one thing we could learn frm the would probably be instantaneous feedback on recommended reads or reviews with the tagboard. I didnt quite favor it as first because of its added loading time, but maybe shall reconsider ;D
# Daphne Blogs with TypePad, and has really useful recommendations on her sidebars, really nifty especially for a hobby-based blog. One other useful thing would be catagories, which we lack. Hmm. Anyway. Also found out she reviews for The Star, as does another of our reviewers, IreneQ. Not a blog on book reviews per se, but more of a personal hobby-blog, her hobby being reading books and all related to it.
Her entries are friendly and lighthearted. I'd say we could pick up a couple of things from all these people, really =P
# Nizam Zakaria Next we have Nizam, not a stranger to the blogging community. Not strictly a book reviewer though. This book community also does events, movies, tv shows, travels, interviews with local personalities, etc. Great stuff, though sometimes its comprehensive manner can get to those with short attention spans. I'd have to admire his dedication to this pet project of his. He updates his template manually [I presume] to put up announcements, recommended reads, as well as latest reviews.
Nizam also reviews for KakiSeni.Com, with regular updates and reviews on the malaysian arts scene. Then there's also his photo blog, with plenty of photos and commentary.
Ah. There. Thats it. I've been rather busy lately, havent had a chance to make any reviews, but shall soon. Do let me know if there are anymore book-related blogs around ;D! graceshu # 6:02 PM
