A Readin' & Chillin' Weekly Link Round-Up

Yesterday, I told you of my intentions to chill for a few days, but since I already had this batch of links rounded up, I wasn't about to deprive you of them. Enjoy! I'll just be chillin' in the pool and reading good books!

►Books & Other Interesting Tidbits◄

►Channeling My Inner Indiana Jones◄

►Channeling My Inner Elly Mae Clampett◄
►The Happy Wanderer◄

►Fascinating Folk◄
  • My first thriller: Tess Gerritsen.
  • The mansion of Madam C.J. Walker, America's first black female self-made millionaire, gets a new life.
  • Ma Rainey, the queer black woman who reinvented the blues.
  • Mary Anning: How a poor British carpenter's daughter became "the greatest fossil hunter ever known" (and the subject of one of my favorite tongue twisters when I was a child).
  • Carl Cotton, the black taxidermist who made history at Chicago's Field Museum.
  • Bessie Stringfield, the bad-ass black motorcycle queen of the 1930s.

    1. I am. I spent a good part of today playing amid all my bookshelves!

  3. You enjoy your pool time and take as much of a break as you need. It's all good!

  4. I love the little libraries. Wish we had some here in the middle of Manhattan. I would have a slew of books to donate.

    I've read the book links. Time to read the rest.
