Offbeat Book Blogs

Not all book blogs are created equal. Some of them are just cooler than others. Or quirker than others. Or just plain fun.

Below are six unusual internet places that celebrate books.

DEATH ON THE NILE by Agatha Christie.

3-Panel Book Reviews – a reviewer who sums her reading experience up perfectly in a three panel comic per book

AYearofReadingtheWorld – a blog from one of the worldliest readers ever, reviewing English translations of books that were written all over the world. Check out the list here.

Thug Notes – Explore LITERATURE with yo’ boy Sparky Sweets, PhD. It’s classic literature, original gangster. Always wanted to get into classic literary theory, but find regular English classes too boring? Try Sparky Sweets.

Heads up though, in true “thug” style, these videos use some strong language.

Go Book Yourself – a collection of book recommendations based on the principle of “if you like this book, you’ll like these other ones too.”

The Spaghetti Book Club - Book Reviews by Kids for Kids

Spaghetti Book Club – a collection of book reviews written and illustrated by kids, for kids. These are really, really cute.

Pemberley Digital –  a web video production company that adapts classic works (like Frankenstein, Emma, and Pride and Prejudice) onto new media formats. Their scripted YouTube videos are fun adaptations in their own right, but are even more fascinating to trace across Tumblr, Pinterest, and other cross-platform tie-ins.
