"My friend went home utterly defeated after that meeting with her publisher because she doesn't know how (or want to know how) to be Maureen Johnson. It's not fair that her publisher insist that she try. Her books are good and she has a blog and she has online readers and shouldn't that be enough? If you don't want to be branded, why does everyone else get to tell you have to? And why do they get to crush your books when you don't and claim that it was all your fault and you didn't try hard enough and you weren't willing to play the new social media game."

"Bloggers pride themselves on being welcoming and open, and almost everyone discusses the importance of finding their individual voice and expressing their honest opinions. We lament the supposed blogger clique, the perceived us-versus-them divide between new and established bloggers. Yet, as soon as someone posts something that may not be in accordance with our own opinions, we are quick to state our opinions on Twitter, thereby starting a general debate that quickly explodes."

"Over the past two years of book blogging, I’ve been very lucky about the amount of books I’ve received and I’ve passed a fair number of my books on to other bloggers in countries such as Vietnam, Pakistan, Scotland, Spain and of course Germany.
I would like to continue supporting international book bloggers and have decided to start the International Book Blogger Mentor Program."

"Book review blogs are for the reader and quite honestly, I rather post a positive review for a book and “pimp” it to the clouds over posting a negative review. But just as book review blogs are here to promote the best in books and authors, they are also here to do a service, to give balance and very bluntly warn readers about books that are not the best they can be ( in their own opinion)."

"In addition, we would like to build a directory of online outlets for book reviews, sharing this valuable information with our readers. As traditional review outlets disappear, online communities may be one of the last places where readers can go to find out about new books. If you would like to be included on that book review directory or participate in GalleyCat Reviews, email us today."

"That said, I don't know how you fast readers do it! I often feel the pressure to read faster, do more, keep current with everyone else. I read for pleasure, yes, but at the same time, I feel like more recently as I read, I wonder how soon I can finish a book and move on to the next one. If it takes me longer than I expect to read a book, I start getting worried."

"The book bloggers out there will be able to fill in a little bit where Kirkus left a big gap. The differences are going to be you could rely on Kirkus--these people were being paid to do the reviews, they were honest...with a blogger, you're not going to get that consistency all the time."
