Weekly Link Round-Up

For those of you who think that I spend hours and hours each week reading blog posts and other things on the Internet for my round-up, think again. I really don't. I think it's more a matter of having the right things sent directly to my inbox. Good thing, too, because Google Reader was playing silly buggers with me today. One time it would tell me that I had 700+ unread posts; then I'd look five minutes later and I'd only have 132. There might be all sorts of wonderful posts I missed out in the book blogosphere, but if your tools are "broke" and you can't fix 'em....

Let's see what managed to make its way through Google's self-imposed moratorium, shall we?

Around the Water Cooler in the Book Blogosphere

New to My Google Reader

That's all for this week. I hope you found a link or two that brightened and enlightened. See you next Friday with a brand-new batch of freshly chosen links for your surfing pleasure!


  1. Thanks for linking to the Bookrageous calendar :D I need to post about that soon too!

  2. You post the best links!! Now I have several things to go read!! I'm interested in CopyGator because there is a website out there that has been taking content from a lot of book bloggers!!!

  3. I loved the Lisbeth Ikea shopping list! I just came home from seeing the Swedish movie of the second book and when she was in her apartments I found myself trying to think of the name of her white stools from Ikea...too funny...

  4. When you find a post for authors about how to dress a character, please tell me! (Okay, I know what she would say: read the same fashion magazines :D)

  5. Amy-- You're welcome. Pretty cool, isn't it? :)

    Staci-- That's what I've been hearing!

    Caite-- The IKEA link was one of my favorites in this edition. :)

    Dorte-- Normally all the authors that tend to be my favorites don't spend a lot of time describing clothes....


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