Book review roundups

Once upon a time, I used to go through 50+ book sections every weekend to see which of our books were being reviewed.  Then my company got a subscription to Nexis.  Then Google Alerts got invented.  And then I set up an RSS reader.  So now I pretty much know — times three — when any of the books which I’m publicizing are mentioned.

Still, it’s nice to be able to see what else out there is being reviewed (which is where the RSS reader comes in handy).  But also, several blogs publish regular review roundups, including:

  • Confessions of an Idiosyncratic Mind: lit blogger Sarah Weinman’s posts her roundup of the Sunday book sections by that evening
  • Critical Mass: the NBCC blog lists reviews written by members.  Haven’t quite figured out how frequently or exactly when …
  • Omnivoracious: Amazon.com posts their roundup on Tuesdays

Very handy.
