What book blog posts have you enjoyed this week? A couple that I bookmarked include. . .
Everything Austen II is here!
Posted by Stephanie’s Written Word
From July 1 until January 1, 2011, Stephanie’s Written Word will host The Everything Austen Challenge. “All you need to do is pick out six Austen-themed things you want to finish to complete the challenge,” Stephanie writes. You can find more details here, including how to connect with other Austenites during the Challenge. Sounds like fun! Any Book Case readers plan to participate?
The Afghan Women’s Writing Project
Posted by She Is Too Fond of Books. . .
I first heard about the Afghan Women’s Writing Project when I read that recent Bellwether Prize-winner Naomi Benaron works with the organization, and I was interested to learn more about the group today on Dawn’s book blog. She writes, “the AWWP is a non-profit group which mentors Afghan women in writing their short stories, poetry, and personal essays. These women’s voices are published in the AWWP online magazine in a blog-like format which invites commentary from readers.” Click here to read more and for some highlights from the online magazine.
