All Things Bookish

If you're like me, sometimes it can be a sisyphean task to stay abreast of everything that's happening in the book world. I'm posting a few links that can help you with your literary life.

Duotrope - this is a great site for those of you who are submitting. It has an extensive list of journals by genre, as well as expected response times and acceptance rates. Anyone who is serious about submitting will spend some time looking over this site.

Galleycat - Mediabistro's news feed on all things publishing. It's a good way to stay up to date with what's happening in the book industry.

The Book Bench - The New Yorker's book blog. Need I say more?
