Friday Reflections

I’ve been thinking about adding a new feature to Literanista – a Book Blog Tour program.

Book Bloggers would be able to sign up to review Hispanic-related books for free and receive review copies directly from publishers. The program would be organized by me and linked to here.

What do you think? Would anyone be interested in participating?

A couple things of note:
