Top 10 Blogs for Book Lovers 2013: The Winners

Top 10 Blogs for Book Lovers AwardAt Story Cartel, we love books. We asked you to help us find the best blogs for book lovers by nominating your favorite book blogs. You responded with over 120 nominations.

We narrowed that list down to 20 book blog finalists. Then, we had our expert judges rate each blog using a complicated formula. (Which we actually had to seek outside help on. We’re writers after all and statistics are not our forté. So, thanks Scott!) You can see how the winners were chosen here.

We hope these excellent blogs help you satiate your love for books!
