Moorishgirl in the Observer

Observer critic Hephzibah Anderson files an article about literary blogs, name-checking Moorishgirl, adding:

These are not havens for kinky librarians but online reading journals – digital marginalia on books they’ve loved and loathed, supplemented by cut-and-paste montages of mainstream reviews. In tone, they offer the same abrasive mix of passion and gunslinging opinion that makes the political bloggers so refreshing.

However, Anderson’s unqualified mention of publishers “buying their way onto blogs with advertisements” deserves comment. Just to be clear: I don’t take ads and I don’t receive kickbacks for any books you see on review here. Nor do I plan to.
