I think this should be a Web site of its own, but an "sfbooksnewsletter" LJ account is a pretty good second choice. Material that appears on LJ could be reprinted on the Web site if you ever get one.

As I've said before, I also think that mingling "upcoming books" lists with reviews by other people would make things more interesting.

Ah, but the website will have the finished, compiled information. This would be for more of the general natter and "what's in the mailbox today" stuff that I find interesting in an ephemeral way, but doesn't really affect the end result.

And I do think mixing in reviews would be a fine thing - as long as I'm not writing them...

Given that you aren't using the alicebentley account much, there's no reason not to post the newsletter content there. But if you prefer to keep the two separate it's no big hassle for me to subscribe to both.

Upon consideration, I did want to keep them seperate. So I created sfbooksnews and have started it off with yesterday's arrivals.

And then, of course, I answer some of the comments without realizing that I was using my catch-all read some writer's blogs account readerofwriters instead of my regular all purpose alicebentley.

Not to be confused (although I'm sure I will) with my just created sfbooksnews account.

But it still seems easier than using filters....

Alternatively, you could start a blog elsewhere and set up a feed account on LJ. Or at least mention on your (other) LJs that you've updated the reviews thing.
