A Spot of Shakespeare Spotting

I found a few more new blogs and have added them to the Sidebar.
Three of them I would like to mention.

Biblioaddict because yesterday and today she was reviewing a new book about Shakespeare, called Will in the World by Stephen Greenblatt. I need to find more links specifically about Shakespeare and the authorship question.

And BookWorm because Sylvia is a fellow Canadian (even if she does live on the other side of the country). Sylvia also has so much stuff about Great Books (And I am very interested in acquiring a Great books education) and other stuff, I know it's going to take me ages to read everything. Technically I am not a Canadian - yet. I am still a permanent resident, but I do plan on applying for citizenship, when I am eligible to do so.

And lastly Book Chase because he uses the same blog template I do. I mean, there are probably hundreds of blogs here at blogspot that use this template, but Book Chase was the first one I have seen that is specifically a Books blog. Also this one has lots of photos, and even a video, and I am now inspired to learn how to add pictures and other graphics to make my new blog look more interesting.

Good luck with your new blog...I think you'll find that this is a very addictive hobby. And thanks for mentioning Book Chase.

Here are two sites that may help you on your way towards a "great books' education.

The Self Made Scholar :

The Stingy Scholar :

WOW, Steven,

All I can is WOW. Both those sites are excellent!!!

And a link to the Rare Books Room as well, I am in Book heaven this evening.

Thank you so much.

Your'e more than welcome.

Though reading a book online does not provide the same experience as holding a book in your hands ... there are 20,000 books available for just such reading via The Gutenberg Project :
