    Update 8/8/11: Oh, my friends, it appears that my days of obsessive blog reading are about over. I just don't have time to keep up any more. I'm paring back to just a few, and I won't be updating this list any more. I'll take it off sticky when it gets dated. In the meantime, Guide to Literary Agents did their Best Blogs of 2011 a while ago. Check that out. /update

    Often when someone posts something I think "Hey, I just read a blog post about that!" And several times people have asked me for a list of blogs I read, so I thought I'd write them all out for you. Some of these links are straight to the blog, some are to their RSS feed. (You know about Google Reader, right?)

    This is a super-handy way to keep up with agents, genre news, get advice from superstar agents, editors, and other industry insiders. MTS as a genre is tougher than ever to break into. We need to keep ourselves informed, and this is one easy way to do it.

    Now I know I'm leaving some blogs out. There are a few that are too stridently political for my taste. I like my industry news straight, not flavored by any politics. That being said, if I'm missing a great blog (including yours), PM me, rep me, or leave a comment. It's possible I haven't seen it yet. I'll update from time to time. very own Mac. Faust, Bookends Agency blogs on industry stuff. Entertaining and enlightening. -Our very own MarkEsq with a fascinating look at the inner workings of the law, and thrillers! and Goderich Agency. Recently named one of Writer's Digest's Top Five Blogs. Recently revamped, this agency includes my Favorite Agent of All Time and is my personal favorite.
