It's a Cozy Con Weekly Link Round-Up!

You'd think that I'd be going through my 2500 UK trip photos as fast as humanly possible so that I can share them with everyone, but I'm not. In fact, I've been so busy restocking the pantry, planning meals, doing laundry, trying to catch up on a boatload of reviews, and working with Denis to turn Casa Kittling into a solar-powered abode that I'm running far, far behind on those photos.

To top it all off, I've been working as an inaugural book expert for a fantastic new social network called PopCircle. It's for all of us who love books, movies, music and television. I hope you'll all take a look. The link I gave you above is to the main page, and if you'd like to take a look at the books in all my collections, here's my PopCircle page. (That big green P in my social media links on my sidebar stands for PopCircle, by the way.) I'll be posting more about it later!

My purchase in Inverness
I had a book arrive from The Book Depository yesterday. I found it at Waterstone's in Cambridge, but the tome was huge and would've been like trying to squeeze three bricks in my suitcase. Instead, Denis took a picture of it with his phone, and I came home and ordered it from a place where I wouldn't have to pay shipping (or fees for having a suitcase that weighed too much). The photo of that book won't load because-- as Denis would say-- Blogger's playing "silly buggers." Here's a photo that will load, so I'll show you my purchase at the wonderful Leakey's Bookshop in Inverness, Scotland instead. So there, Blogger!

Speaking of books (I know... I tend to do that a lot), I'm really looking forward to tomorrow. I'll be attending CozyCon II, hosted by The Poisoned Pen at the main branch of the Phoenix Public Library. I have my clothes laid out, my purse is loaded with notebook, pens, camera, spare battery, and my debit card. All I need to do is get some sleep, so I can be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed when I meet all those authors. On to the links!

Bookish News & Other Interesting Stuff

Digital Reading

I   ♥  Lists

That's it for this week. Don't forget to stop by next weekend when I'll have a freshly selected batch of links for your surfing pleasure!


  1. Cathy - Enjoy Cozy-Con! I hope you have a fantastic time. And I'm glad you were able to beat Blogger and show us that 'photo :-). Thanks as ever for the links too. It'll be interesting to find out how poets do what they do so well, and still keep the power on and the rent paid...

    1. It's an interesting line-up of second jobs, Margot!

  2. I loved the lists, especially the movie vs. book endings one!


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