Welcome to Bookopolis!

After lurking in the shadows of many wonderful blogs, I have finally decided to jump on the book blog bandwagon! With the rising costs of printing and the consequent decrease of book coverage in many newspapers (including that of my own Montreal Gazette), book bloggers have become more important than ever to further literary discourse. Especially with the advent of modern technology, people are increasingly turning to the web in search of answers and ideas. That is why it is so important to initiate discussion and promote our love of literature. In this blog I plan on sharing my opinions about upcoming books as well as book-related news, and hopefully inspire people to keep on reading because there are so many FANTASTIC books out there just waiting to be read!

Hi..I agree with you on this. I miss my Saturday Book Section in the Gazette. We are now down to one full page and even that isn't much. So much for raise a reader eh? Oh well to fill my found I too have found blogs. Looking forward to talking more to you.
