Weblog of the Week: Maud Newton
Why I Like It: Maud Newton, the creation of writer Maud Newton, is my favorite weblog about books and writing. I read it for a lot of reasons--books news, literary gossip, and insight from Maud and her guest writers. Whenever I don't read it, I feel like I'm missing something.
It's that newsy feel that might explain why Maud Newton has attracted so much attention from traditional media sources like USA Today and The Washington Post.
You can learn more in Maud's "canned bio," which also reveals that she was once a lawyer. That fact figured in a post I did last year: "Maud Newton, Lawyer-Writer."
2. In a post about Disney's adaptation of C.S. Lewis' The Narnia Chronicles, Maud predicts that a "shitstorm" will greet the film's release.
3. In a post about waiters in New York City, Maud passes on some gossip about John Grisham.
