Online reading for readers.


WWW.BOOKSLUT.COM
A monthly Web magazine and daily blog for the literarily promiscuous who cannot survive solely with the Times Sunday book picks, Bookslut's offerings include author interviews (such as October's feature with Sandman author Neil Gaiman) plus genre picks for those obsessed with comic books (comicbookslut), food books (cookslut) and mysteries (mystery strumpet). The daily blog highlights everything from big book news to other book features on the World Wide Web.

WWW.BIBLOMANIA.COM
Nothing will ever replace the tactile joy of searching in a library or bookstore, finding what you need and holding it in your grubby hands. But Biblomania provides the cyber equivalent with more than 2,000 classic texts, author bios, articles, interviews and a great reference section that includes free searchable dictionaries, thesauruses, quotations, literary definitions and more.

WWW.BYLINER.COM
Did you miss Frank Rich's column last week? Are you wondering what the top-read stories on the Internet are right now? Byliner isn't an exhaustive tracking site, but it does pretty well at indexing articles from many sites (The Times, Alternet, Salon, Slate, McSweeney's, etc.) by author, so you can check up on your favorite writers (or yourself, if you're a writer) and also just bop around to see what's new and hot.

WWW.MCSWEENEYS.NET/LINKS/LISTS
And speaking of Timothy McSweeney's Internet Tendency, God knows you'll find enough to read here to keep you, well, reading all day long (when you're supposed be working), so if you just want to take a quick bite from the literary cognoscenti's apple, check out the "Lists" links, an inspiringly odd literary endeavor sure to inspire, or at least bemuse, readers and writers alike, with such items as "Creationist Astronomers Polled Regarding Pluto's Status," "Jewish Holidays for Hipsters" and "Wikipedia Articles Longer Than 'Spain.'"
