In Memoriam

December 1, 2008

Although the book-blogging community is a friendly and close-knit one, it’s also large. There’s no way that one person can know and follow every other book blogger out there.

But be that as it may, I’d be willing to wager that almost every book blogger out there knew of Dewey from The Hidden Side of a Leaf. And I was shocked and saddened to read this morning a post by her husband letting us know that she’d passed away.

I didn’t know Dewey personally, or even particularly well, but I greatly admired not only her own blogging, but also the incredible effort she put into creating a sense of community in the book-blogging world. My thoughts are with her family and friends; this world is a poorer place for having lost her.

    Everyone knew her indeed, and everyone loved her too. She will be missed :(

    All of the tribute posts we’ve seen are a testament to the impact she had on the book blogging community. It won’t be the same without her. My heart goes out to her family.

    She was indeed a book blogging communal force…and we will continue to pay homage to her memory.

    I think Dewey touched more bloggers than any other single person in our wide world — which actually was kind of small, just a few years ago. Dewey was one of my first regular visitors. I miss her, already.

    Dewey’s was the first blog I read regularly and she inspired me with her enthusiasm and dedication. She did indeed touch so many, her absence in the community will be deeply mourned.

    She will certainly be missed :(
