Weekly Link Round-Up, Better-Late-Than-Never Edition

My apologies for this week's link round-up being a bit late. I've been enjoying my time off a bit too much! So with no further delay, let's get right to the links, shall we? Hopefully you'll find several that pique your interest.

Don't forget to stop by next Friday when I'll have a whole new batch of links for your surfing pleasure!


  1. What a fine collection of links this time, but I won´t use exclamation marks or smilies.

    I enjoyed several of them, but especially Top Ten List of Unreliable Narrators (I am trying to teach my students that first-person narrators are often unreliable). I have bookmarked the Booktown competition as I am too tired to be creative tonight, and you have probably guessed that I have read ´punctuation´ and am now trying to mend my ways.

  2. Hummm. I use Firefox and have for years. I have never had a hard time commenting on embedded comment boxes. I suspect the problem is with the person's firewall or privacy settings.

    Great list of links -- as always. Off to see your new blogs.

  3. Dorte-- I'm a bit of an unreliable narrator myself when I listed all those statements, stated that only one of them was true when they all were. :)

    Beth-- I think you're right about the embedded comment boxes, but I have had readers tell me they couldn't leave comments when I'd switched to it, so I switched back to the pop-up. No need to antagonize readers! :)

  4. Thanks--this is a particularly good collection of links! Or maybe I'm just in a procrastinating mood about work...

  5. Jeanne-- Six of one, half dozen of another?? ;)


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
