For Books’ Sake

5 Aug

Have you ever used technorati? Try it, it’s cooool! Technorati allows you to look for the top blogs (using some crazy popularity/legitimacy formula) for any word. I looked up “feminism” (how predictable) and found some cool sites.

One was For Books’ Sake: Books by and for Independent Women. In their own words:

For Books’ Sake is an intelligent but irreverent website featuring books by and for independent women. Featuring classic and contemporary writing by both iconic and upcoming women authors, it includes news, reviews and interviews.

With only fourteen women winners in more than forty years of the Booker Prize, and the recent statistics from VIDA showing that in a 2010 audit of mainstream media, about 75% of books reviewed were by male authors, our intention is to give women authors a platform and a voice, and to celebrate and promote their writing.

And it has a cool design! And is very well-organized for browsing purposes. Explore!
