An interview with one of my favorite book bloggers. Excited about this one.
Today we're whisked away by Yuri Hobart, the 26-year-old Berkeley, California, blogger behind Bookswept. The site has two parts — a blog, or "Notebook," where Yuri reflects on books interspersed with food posts and author interviews; and the main collection, in which she posts original photos paired with quotes from whatever she's currently reading. While both sections are thoughtful, it's the latter that grabbed my attention so long ...
