Book Bloggers Aren't Killing Lit Crit, They're Saving It
"What blogs can give readers is a sense of trust that, in professional circles, only the biggest lit-crit names - such as James Wood or Michiko Kakutani - can attain: a 'criticism with personality'. They are expressing opinions about books in particular, and literature in general, based on a particular life of reading, written in a critical but non-technical language. What they can also give, crucially, is attention to books other than the newly published." The Guardian (UK) 09/26/12
