Bibliobloggers at SBL

Douglas Mangum of Biblia Hebraica has a nice listing of Bibliobloggers presenting at SBL. It is quite a list! We were working a Biblioblogger get together but so far we have not had much luck. I will keep you posted! In the meantime, do check out the growing list of papers on offer by our guild. As pointed out, Aramaic Studies offers a two-for-one!
