Book Blogs

My favorite literary blog, Moby Lives, seems to have gone on hiatus. Well, I guess I’ll have to depend on the Bookslut Blog from now on. Any other ideas?

Given what I see as your clear-sighted understanding of the problems of modernity (specifically its active malevolance towards Christianity) and how that plays out in popular culture, I’m curious as to how/whether you manage to engage with “serious” contemporary fiction.
Maybe I’m too theologically oriented, but I must admit I find most of it spiritually enervating to the nth degree. After all nihilism is still nihilism, no matter how much talent and technique are put into drawing the portrait.
Or am I wrong? (Also any reading suggestions that might make me change my mind?)
P.S. I think you need to change the time settings on your blog to GMT -5:00

Or mine? (Although the other two look great, and I’ve added them to my bookmarks!)
