Weekly Link Round-Up

Once again it's time to share some of the favorite pages I discovered in the past week during my journeys around the internet!

Books in the News
  • Thousands of people rampaged through a warehouse that had been abandoned by an Amazon supplier. Faint-of-heart book lovers may want to give the photos a miss, and I do think this could've been handled in a better way. The article is here.
  • The New York Times had an article about a program referred to as "Read a Book, Get Out of Jail" that I found very interesting.
  • The Guardian had an article about the types of books you need to read in order to impress a date.
  • Funny but very true, this article talks about 5 Things NOT to Do On Your First Day at
Fun Stuff
Stuff for Your Blog
  • Ever wanted to have a five-star rating code at the bottom of each of your posts? Here's where you can get the widget.
  • Want to learn how to rank highly in search engines? Here's a book on how to do it.
  • Have a Blogger blog and want to add code to your template for all the social bookmarking sites. Here are step-by-step instructions and the code you need. It's what I'm using now, and since it's part of my template, it's stable and doesn't morph into something useless.

Interesting Blog Articles
That's it for this week. I'll see you here again next Sunday!


  1. Oh, I like this feature, Cathy. It's nice to see your weekly link round-up. I'm enjoying Linkaholix. It's kind of fun.

  2. Wow, thanks for mentioning me! It means something for the bloggers I respect to encourage me like this. =)

  3. Lesa--it does look like it will be fun!

    Elizabeth--thanks for the compliment. I think that's all any of us need from time to time: just a bit of encouragement!

  4. I really enjoy these weekly round up of links -- helps me find stuff I might have missed! Definitely want to read the Paperback Swap one -- I probably committed some of the sins! And I always like the blog help post you find. And thanks so much for the shout out! : )

  5. Jenners--you're welcome! As far as the PBS article goes, I know I committed one of the things mentioned, and it was much worse than what happened to the writer!


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