Full Interview: Tim Carmody on Blooks

Photo by Let Ideas Compete

These days, it seems I can't visit a bookstore without running into stacks of blooks. "What's a blook?" you ask?

A blook is printed book that contains or is based on content from a blog.
There are many examples: PostSecret, Awkward Family Photos, $#*! My Dad Says, Graph Out Loud, Cake Wrecks: When Professional Cakes Go Hilariously Wrong... the list goes on and on. For his take on the blook trend, Nora interviewed Tim Carmody. Tim's a writer, literary historian, blogger, and self-described "BookFuturist." A shorter version of this interview will air on Spark 121, but you can hear the full, uncut interview if you download the MP3. [runs 13:52]
