3:10 Jessa Crispin: A Life in Books

For 14 years, Jessa Crispin has been a champion for people who love to read.   In her blog, Bookslut, she was never afraid to set aside publisher hyperbole and and offer her brutal assessment of the quality of modern literature. She became an online pioneer, setting new standards for criticism and blogging.   But she closed down Bookslut  abruptly, unwilling to make the sacrifices needed to make money.  She shares her view of the state of literature and blogs.
