The Wednesday Web Browser: Notable New Sites/Blogs Edition

I received an e-mail a few days ago alerting me to the news that Tin House Books has redesigned its site and launched a blog. (This might be a good time to revisit my comments about some particularly good reads from Tin House books.)
Here at Practicing Writing, we take Mark Sarvas's blog posts very seriously, so when he recently recommended two new online destinations, we listened.
As you may have heard, the National Book Foundation is celebrating the 60th year of the National Book Awards by offering a "book-a-day blog on the Fiction winners from 1950 to 2008." They've only just started, so it's definitely not too late to check in.
Finally, the folks at Writer's Digest have also just launched a blog, Promptly, promising "a writing prompt-driven community" that will be "shelling out prompts to get your pen moving and keep it that way." I'll be following its progress.
