Calling All Book Bloggers!

     I was recently reading The Bookseller magazine (as I am now a bookseller myself) and I came across a great article by Scott Pack that stated that newspapers were missing a trick by not inviting book bloggers to place the odd review in print, blogging now being the more dynamic medium.

     Read the article in full here.

     What I'm wondering, dear book bloggers, is how you feel about this:
  • Would you like to be invited to contribute reviews to a print literary section?
  • Would it somehow formalise or legitimise what you do, being as it is that, by some, print journalists are viewed as professionals whilst bloggers are viewed as amateurs?
  • Or would you rather proudly commit to blogging as it is the future of reviewing in any case?

       Basically, what do you think?
