In an industry where the success of a new book can be bought with marketing campaigns that cost thousands, book bloggers represent a new and entirely independent literary force.

This first ever guide to the top book blogs aims to tempt anyone new to this phenomena to log-on and get reading - including interviews and sample reviews from the leading contributors as well as tips on new book bloggers.
