Default Spread The Word - the Palimpsest blog aggregator

Stewart, being all clever and that, has created a neat little aggregator that takes a feed from a new post on a blog that isn't The Palimp, and turns it into a post here. This benefits both us and the blogs from which the link comes. We want to make it public BUT will need suggestions for which blogs it takes a feed from (and links to).

Your own, of course (and please do list your own), plus favourites.

So. Now it's over to you.

Could you list your regular blogs and - if possible - separate them into BOOKS, FILM, OTHER REVIEWS, LIFE and then we'll be able to make sure they appear in the right forum (if they're indefinable, say, we'll make a management decision to plonk them down somewhere). The end result is simply a post with a taster sentence or two followed by a link to the original/parent blog, thus:

Quote:
David Vann’s previous book, Legend of a Suicide, was one of the most interesting debuts of 2009. I read it and enjoyed it – particularly the extraordinary central novella ‘Sukkwan Island’ – but that was during a hiatus in blogging for me, so I didn’t review it. I vowed not to make the same mistake [...]

More...
For me, for instance, I'd go with:

BOOKS:
Asylum

FILMS:
The Kind of Face you Hate

There you go. Please, fire away...

What a great idea! I have trouble keeping up with everyone's fantastic blogs so it would be nice to have them post here, as well.

I would add:

Reading Matters -- Kim is as good as John Self on authors Irish and she also visits her Aussie roots.

A Common Reader -- TomC is perceptive on European works in translation.

ANZ LitLovers -- Lisa is an excellent source on Antipodean fiction.

I'd like to second that call - how many strings to that man's bow are there?
