www.bookslut.com -"Bookslut is a monthly web magazine and daily blog dedicated to those who love to read. We provide a constant supply of news, reviews, commentary, insight, and more than occasional opinions. It's odd that the English language has come to a pass where having judgment has positive connotations but being judgmental is considered somehow mean-spirited. Everyone involved in Bookslut is, in their own way, judgmental. We judge with relish and glee. We believe that there is value and even virtue in this act. However, we strive not to indulge in either touchy-feely pseudo-praise or ill-intentioned and self-serving flaming. We judge, in other words, with judgment. Most of all, we love books with an almost sexual passion. We couldn't do this if we didn't. Bookslut is the creation of editor-in-chief Jessa Crispin."
