Second Last Call: Nominate Your Favorite Blogs For LISNews 10 Blogs To Read in 2008

'Tis The Season to put together our list of "must read" library blogs for 2008. Like our 10 Blogs To Read in 2006 & 2007, the goal is to create a list that will reflect a wide a range of opinions in our profession.

What blogs do you read every day? What blogs help you learn? What blogs keep you informed? What blogs make you laugh? Who's the best writer out there? Think of it this way: "I read many others, but these are the LIS blogs that read even when time is short."

Your list need not be complete, fair, or even have more than one blog listed. I'm looking for input from everyone so the final list is full of new faces. My goal again this year, 10 blogs that paint picture of what's going on in our little world.

Send me your ideas, or leave a comment below.

Anyone who made it to 10 Blogs To Read in 2006 & 2007 won't be included this year. 10 Blogs To Read In 2007 and 10 Blogs To Read in 2006.
