You Loved the Blog, Now Read the Book

Blogging is an easy and usually harmless way to share your thoughts and interests with the world. Really good at arts and crafts? Passionate about an obscure movie/band/book? Strong opinions on the love lives of fictional TV characters? All good reasons to start a blog. While most bloggers toil in obscurity, some rise to a surprising level of fame. And fame, naturally, leads to a book deal. From the hilarious to the informative, these books contain the best posts from their respective sites and even new content for your reading pleasure.
