Meet Sweden’s Biggest Book Bloggers

What’s happening in the world of Swedish publishing? To find out, GalleyCat caught up with the four founding members of Bokhora (Bookslut, in English), Sweden’s largest literary blog.

The editors covered a number of key topics about Swedish publishing, including: the surprising popularity of the Stanza e-reader, how the recession has affected publishers, the origins of the name “Bookslut,” and the headline-making books back home. Authors discussed include Joan Didion, Paul Auster, Neil Gaiman, and Siri Hustvedt.

The Bokhora interview took place at Tea Lounge in Brooklyn, and the Swedish bloggers showed off their favorite books at nearby Bookcourt. Special thanks to Baby Got Books for suggesting the interview.
