Unshelved comic strip for 5/20/2013

Introducing @bookblrb

How short can a book talk get? Let's find out.

Gene and I have spent the last few months going through hundreds of our book recommendations, turning each into a very, very short blurb. How short? Each fits in in a single tweet along with a link to find out more. In fact they're so short that even the phrase book blurb starting feeling ponderous, so we shortened it to bookblrb .

We will send a new one out every day. Twitterers can Follow @bookblrb, and Facebookers can Like our Bookblrb page. The rest of you can find @bookblrb on our home page, and we hope to add it to the email and RSS feed very soon.

We hope @bookblrb helps you find even more great books to read and share.

P.S. While we were going through all those reviews we also tagged them all.

P.P.S. There's also a Facebook page for Unshelved. Twitterers can follow me (@billba) and Gene (@ambaum) and get strip and blog updates at @unshelfeed.
