Weekly Link Round-Up-- 4th of July Weekend Edition

The monsoon season is trying its best to start here in Phoenix, Arizona. Nothing like much higher humidity when it's 113°F. (45°C.) in the shade. Here's hoping that Mother Nature will be generous with rain... and not have ten years' worth fall in less than five minutes, which is usually what happens during monsoon season!

What links have I found for y'all during this holiday weekend? Let's take a look!

Bookish News & Other Fun Stuff
Blogging & Social Media Tips
Around the Water Cooler in the Book Blogosphere

That's it for this edition of the Weekly Link Round-Up. Don't forget to stop by next Friday when I'll have a brand-new batch of personally selected links for your surfing pleasure!

Happy Independence Day, everyone! Even if you don't celebrate this American holiday, celebrate a bit of independence. It does the soul good!


  1. I just love all of those bookends! The Star Wars one is especially adorable and I'm not even a big Star Wars fan! And the Nora Ephron is a riot! Thanks for all the great links. And yes, I'll pray for rain for you if you pray for me! :--) It really is miserable for us folks in Southern Arizona!

  2. Okay -- I have 7 tabs open from your list. Great as always.

    Have a super Fourth -- and I'm not sure if I should wish you rain or not.

  3. Loved the Nora Ephron piece. :D We are heading into a heat wave ourselves and it's dry for a change. As I sweat, I'll have my fingers crossed for nice rain for both of us, no gully-washers, just slow easy rain that lasts a while.

  4. Loved your links, as usual. Have been clicking and reading away!!!

  5. First time here and I'm loving all of the great links!!! I bookmarked that Facebook landing..looks interesting. Loved the article about the book blogging community too.

    Thanks so much for adding my blog to your Reader!!!

  6. Thanks for mentioning my blog in your weekly Link Round Up.

  7. Rhapsody-- Looks as though we got a reprieve here in Phoenix. I hope you did, too. I'm glad you enjoyed the links!

    Beth-- Although we need the rain, we got the best present: lower temperatures and humidity this weekend!
