A 2021 Here We Come! Weekly Link Round-Up

Everything is peaceful and bright here at Casa Kittling, so no words. Just one small sentiment and on to the links!

►Books & Other Interesting Tidbits◄
►Channeling My Inner Indiana Jones◄
►Channeling My Inner Elly Mae Clampett◄
►The Last of the Holiday Cheer◄
►The Wanderer◄
  • Cape Town: South Africa's new hub of urban cool... and crime fiction.
  • Hawaii reboots Depression-Era Conservation Corps using pandemic assistance funds. Great idea!
  • Sad to read this: The abandoned town of Cairo, Illinois. If you're from that neck of the woods, you know that Cairo is pronounced KAY-roe, not KYE-roe... and standing and looking out over the area where the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers meet is awe-inspiring.
  • A landmark that could be seen for miles is gone: Blasts bring down the Navajo Generating Station towers in northern Arizona. (Of course, they closed something down with no ounce of concern for all the suddenly unemployed in a powerty-stricken area. Seems to me, it could be a wonderful location for a huge solar plant...)
  • The Bookworm Cabin in Poland was custom-designed for reading.
►I ♥ Lists & Quizzes◄

That's all for this week! Don't forget to stop by next Friday when I'll be sharing a freshly selected batch of links for your surfing pleasure.

Stay safe! Stay healthy! And don't forget to curl up with a good book!


  1. Happy New Year, Cathy! May 2021 treat you kindly and well! Thanks for your blog during the past year; it helped very much in an unprecedented year. Now... off to that mausoleum! And then, I think, those Amazon villages.

  2. Happy New Year! With thanks for your blog helping light the way through the past year, and with hope that 2021 is definitely better.

    1. We could all use a ton of Better, couldn't we?

  3. Happy New Year! 🎉🎊 I have been enjoying all the year end lists, whuch adds or moves things on my TBR!

    1. I know what you mean. I'm posting quite a few of those lists in my link round-up next week.

  4. I like this quote from the "Greatest Crime Books of All Time" article: "So long as we have lists of great books in any genre, and so long as we constantly read titles from those lists, we remain alive and enhance our lives in the process."

    I love lists, but they can become masters rather than tools. This quote encourages me to keep making lists.

    Have a great weekend, Cathy!

    1. I'll never stop making lists, Gretchen. Thankfully, it's been awhile since any list has been my master. (Retirement can be helpful that way.)

  5. Love this round-up. Happy New Year!! May our lives be surrounded by great books and beautiful things.


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