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.

WOW, Steven,

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

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 :
