Bookplanet: Village Voice on litblogs

The Village Voice asks: 'Could cyberspace be the novel's best friend? Litblogs take off--and grow up.' And then they say:
'The media have spent so much time gnashing their teeth over the influence of political bloggers that barely anyone has noticed something equally convulsive happening in the book realm. Despite the on-going panic about a contraction in both the audience for serious literature and the amount of mainstream print coverage books receive, literary conversation is erupting all over the Internet in the form of litblogs. Multiplying like the tribbles on Star Trek, these online journals suggest that reading is far from a dying pastime.' More here. Hey, we're one of these litblogs ourselves, though we're not famous yet. Give us a year or two.
