Weekly Link Round-Up

Gorgeous weather here in Phoenix, and I'd rather enjoy it than talk about it, so let's see what kind of goodies I have lined up for you this week!

Non-Bookish, But Can't Beat the Aw Factor

  • If you're a sucker for baby animals like I am, check out Zoo Borns.
Bookish News
Social Media and Blogging Tips
Around the Water Cooler in the Book Blogosphere
  • You have until Thursday, November 12, to sign up for the Book Blogger Holiday Swap!
  • Jackie of Farm Lane Books wants to know if leaders make better bloggers?
  • Nicole of Linus's Blanket has a wonderful series on Blog Talk Radio, That's How I Blog! This week's guest was Kathy of Bermuda Onion's Weblog.
  • Beth of Beth Fish Reads has a great new feature called Weekend Cooking. Its rules are relaxed enough for grouches like me. I need to get myself in gear to share some of my favorite slow cooker recipes--the perfect sort of cooking for bookaholics!
  • At home with a good book and the cat... shocked me to the core. Did you know that Harriet Klausner has given some two- and three-star book reviews at Amazon???
  • Lezlie of Books and Border Collies talks about the Joys of Reading Challenges.
New to My Google Reader
That's it for this week. I hope you've found something to tickle your fancy. Stop by next Sunday when I'll have a brand-new batch of links for your surfing pleasure!


  1. Love the links as always, hm glue you say

  2. Thanks for the Larsson link to the Guardian I had missed that.
    I hope if the material on the laptop is ever published they don't employ another writer to expand it but just publish the raw stuff. That will be more interesting.

  3. I love Zooborns too. Did you see the great pics of the puggles? (Baby echidnas)

  4. As always, a lot of great links to check out. I have already checked out the one about Klausner's 2 star reviews. LOL!!!

  5. Thanks for the link, Cathy!

  6. I always find several things to tickle my fancy on your Link Sunday posts. I especially liked the post about book challenges on Lezlie's blog. Thanks Cathy.

  7. Blodeuedd--Yes, Glue. It's a lot of fun and you can see how many friends/ bloggers are looking at the same books you are-- as well as movies, music, etc.

    Uriah-- You're welcome. I agree. I think the raw material would be more interesting than having another writer work on it.

    Susan-- You betcha! They're so homely they're cute!

    Louise-- I didn't think it was possible...Harriet? 2 star reviews? Wow!

    Lezlie-- You're welcome!

    Margot JR-- You're welcome!

    Jackie-- You're welcome! You had some excellent discussion in the comments as well.

  8. Thanks so much for the linkage! As always you manage to find some great sites and posts. I like those great Twitter buttons and the new to me blogs. I missed Lezlie's post and iPulp Fiction. Thanks for giving me lots to read.

  9. I am always impressed that your links come from fresh sources on a regular basis. You keep some of the strong stand-bys (like ProBlogger) but always mix in what to me seem like random sources. And there is always good content. Big round of applause for your efforts!

  10. Beth-- You're welcome!

    Molly/Andy-- Okay. Someone get out the hat pin. My head's all swelled up! (Thanks!) :)


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