A Holiday Weekend Weekly Link Round-Up

Memorial Day Weekend has begun here in the United States. I hope everyone not only has fun this weekend but also remembers exactly why there is such a thing as Memorial Day Weekend. Namely the fact that more than 1,346,000 men and women have given their lives to protect the freedoms you'll be enjoying by the barbeque with friends or with that good book you're going to read. I mention this, not to be a pain in the neck, but because I think it's an excellent idea to always be thankful for what you've got. It can disappear within the blink of an eye.

Before I check to see if I have all the ingredients for Southwest Bean and Corn Chowder, let me rustle up some links for you!

Bookish News & Other Interesting Stuff

I  ♥ Lists

Book Candy 
  • Hold On Tight, an adjustable bookshelf
  • Take a closer look at this bookcase filled with books and you'll see that it's not what it appears to be.
  • bookcase bed with hidden storage.
  • Artist James Hopkins has decorated a series of bookcases all to have the general shape of a skull, but as the decorations used change, so do the appearance of the skulls. Look in the upper right and click on Next to advance through the photos.

That's it for this week! Enjoy your holiday and stop by next weekend for a freshly selected batch of links for your surfing pleasure!


  1. Cathy - Always love these links - thanks!

  2. Reminding everyone to remember what Memorial Day is about is not being a pain. It's always important to remember our good fortune and the sacrifice of others.

  3. I love the links! Lots of interesting diversions. I loved the bookcase bed.

    1. When I first found the link to the bookcase bed, I envisioned a bed with a bookcase headboard. Boy, was I wrong!

      Glad you enjoy the links, Howard!
