Blogs.com Taps GalleyCat for Literature’s Best

mblogo.jpgWe were pleasantly surprised to wake up this morning and discover GalleyCat had made the Blogs.com list of the ten best literature blogs, as determined by David Gutowksi, the creator of Largehearted Boy—especially since we made it onto the roster with several of our own favorite book blogs, including the websites of novelists Laila Lalami and Mark Sarvas.
