Paul Read or Dread already posted on this -- I figured we might as well give it a home here, too.

These are my nominations:

Lindsay's Book Log
Julian Meynell's Books
Christine's Corner
Carl's Booklikes Blog
memory trees
I promised myself that the next person who followed me would get added to the list. So here you go (she likes Elizabeth Chadwick too, which is a win-win in my book).

Nothing better than a good book... http://crystena77.booklikes.com
Here's some fairly new members that I started following in the past month:

I'll suggest a fairly new member (about a month, I think), who is a fairly active reviewer - Reader! Reader!

http://readerreader.booklikes.com/

She writes good reviews, and I think deserves more than 7 followers.

Anna Bobs Her Hair
Good people help friends find good books

YA Fanatic
Librarian who loves everything about books. Generally read Young Adult.

A Reciprocal Love Affair With Books
She reads a lot of YA


Familiar Diversions
"I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres."
Back to people who are worth following. Reader! Reader! has some great reviews on her page.
Hey everyone! Not sure what qualifies as a newbie, but I'm always up for expanding my connections!

Dang Rover: Cover to Cover
A few suggestions:

--Merle (http://merle.booklikes.com/) reads a wide variety--everything from webcomics to nonfiction. What I love most about her blog is her focus on diverse voices. She's currently doing a challenge to read a book from every country in the world--interesting stuff. I always learn a lot from her reviews.

--Yzabel (http://yzabel.booklikes.com/) writes very detailed, thoughtful reviews, mostly in the scifi/fantasy area, with a nice mix of arcs and current books. I really enjoy reading her analyses, and her reviews give me a good sense of whether I might want to chase down the books.

--Steph's books (http://stephaniejrothwell.booklikes.com/blog) reviews mostly thrillers and detective fiction. I like that she reviews a lot of arcs because her reviews give me a good sense of the up-and-coming books, and what I might want to request myself.

--Deannahello (http://deannahello.booklikes.com/) reviews a lot of fantasy, and I love the enthusiasm she expresses in her reviews.
Plenty more active blogs that could use a wider following -- I've been on a bit of a browsing spree and may also in part be doubling up on other folks' contributions here; but hey, that can't actually hurt, can it?

Incidentally, I deleted the off-topic posts on this thread: let's please stick to this thread's purpose, OK? Thank you so much! :)
While reading through semi-recent reviews of the book I just finished, I ran across an active blogger with very few followers.

From her blurb at the top of her blog: “I am addicted to reading and am currently going through a heavy sci fi and fantasy phase. Aiming for Mediocrity
