A Fingers Crossed Weekly Link Round-Up


It's going to be a busy week here at Casa Kittling, so I'm getting this round-up done early. There are going to be furniture deliveries, the usual medical appointments, and-- since the weather is going to play nice for a change-- Denis and I are planning to go to the Desert Botanical Garden. Yippee!

I feel so seen!

Enjoy the links!

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.

No matter how busy you may be, don't forget that quality Me Time curled up with a good book!


  1. Oh, I hope you get to make that visit! I love going there vicariously. I hope all of your other plans go smoothly. My plans are to visit that Mayan tomb...

    1. Denis and I did get to visit. We'd forgotten how the place can be heaving with people this time of year because of all the snowbirds, but we still enjoyed ourselves.

  2. I really enjoyed the visit my husband and I had to the Desert Botanical Garden. Very unique and beautiful. Hope you guys have a great time!

  3. Good luck this next week with all the goings-on!

    1. Only one delivery was postponed-- not too bad!

  4. The paper vs. e-book link is interesting. I employ both methods of reading, but I agree with you that the most important thing is that people continue to read. I think that's even more important than what they read or how they do it. Have a great week.

    1. You, too, Sam. You and I are in complete agreement about what and how to read. Just. Do. It.

  5. Ah, so many fascinating links to explore once again. I was particularly interested in the one about the Conroe ISD since that is in the county where I live. As for how I read, I am almost exclusively an eReader reader these days. I love my Kindle!

  6. Aye to older women sleuths, Black women pioneers in space and during the Civil War (and now finally as published mystery writers), and boo to book banning. And a nod to wonderful anti-book banning T-shirts.


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