Ready Steady Book

I've come across the coolest new literary site. It is called Ready Steady Book. It is a new site, but it already has a wonderful blog to keep you informed of the literary news. Plus, it has articles...book reviews...poem of the week....today in literature....and a list of a few British literary blogs. They are connected to The Book Depository, which is another find for me this last few weeks. I ordered something from Amazon and it came, new, from this online store. They do free shipping in the UK, so it makes it worth me checking there before relying on Amazon.co.uk all the time! With Amazon, I usually end up buying more books because I want the free shipping. That is OK most of the time....but sometimes you just want to spend the money on ONE book. (Shock Horror I know, but it does happen!)

(edit: Sorry Mark, I should have said...new to me literary site! Well worth a read and do check out his other site at.... http://www.britlitblogs.com/)

Hi Dawn,

Thanks so much for your kind words about my website ReadySteadyBook.com. Actually, the site isn't new at all, I've been running it for a few years now, but I'm very glad you've newly found it!

You might also find some blogs that are new to you via http://www.britlitblogs.com/ (I run this too -- and I've added your blog to our aggregator).

all very best
