And That’s What I Think of THAT

I know last week’s link round-up was a little dry, but I think you’ll like this one. This will be a new weekly thing on Hey Lady! and I’ve changed how I’m doing this. Just read it. Trust me on this.

Nekked. Make sure, after you see the pic, that you read Kim’s comment. Hilarious.

Trish at Trish’s Reading Nook (no, we’re not one in the same) interviewed herself as a way to review Twilight. I think I might steal this idea one day.

You can take a survey that measures the impact of lit blogs.

Why Mama Needs a Caffeine Drip. HAHAHA!! If I could think of titles that catch people’s interest like that title caught mine, I’d be the most popular blogger on my block. Oh, wait, I’m the ONLY blogger on my block. *mumbling* If a = b and b = c, then a = c. *face lights up* I’M THE MOST POPULAR BLOGGER ON MY BLOCK.

C. B. James has Matt from A Guy’s Moleskin Notebook review Crime and Punishment. Why I’m compelled to read reviews about a book I hated years ago, I’ll never know. But it’s akin to seeing something gross, and instead of backing away, you get closer.

I really don’t like non-fiction, but this book about a guy living in France sounds great.

Chris at Stuff as Dreams Are Made On lists all the male book bloggers he knows about. So cool! I knew that those of the XY chromosome persuasion were scarce in the blogging world, but it looks like we’re starting to level out a bit. Yay men!

We now have a new book blogger frequently asked questions post to point folks to. Lenore at Presenting Lenore came up with this GREAT post!

My friend, Meg Waite Clayton (I use the term “friend” loosely…I should probably say, The-lady-who-I’d-like-to-be-my-friend), had a great guest post on her blog from author Jamie Ford who wrote The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. This book is in my ARC pile. I think I’ll pick it up next.

You can now add books to LibraryThing through Twitter.

Remember assigned reading in high school? I loved it and have such fond memories of the books we discussed. Did you like it? Amy from My Friend Amy liked assigned reading. You should let her know if you did, too…or even if you didn’t.

Just go read Jen at Devourer of Books’ review of To Hold the Crown and you’ll know why I sent you over there.

If I could do author interviews like Shelly from Write for a Reader did for Merrily Kutner, I’d do them all the time.

Did you know that Library Thing is attempting to gain help from librarians and readers alike to redo the old Dewey Decimal system of book classification, creating a newer system called Open Shelves Classification or OSC (click on the link to read a little about the vision on the LT Blog). I didn’t either until I read Wendy’s post.

If you read any book blogs at all, you’ve heard about Beat the Reaper. Guess where you can win your very own copy? Over at Bookroom Reviews!!

Eek! One more book to add to my TBR pile! The Family Bones by Kimberly Raiser. “There ‘s not gore, violence and sex in this book…just an out and out thrill ride. I’d recommend this to everyone.”

Did I miss anything particularly exciting in the blog world? Leave a link in the comments and I’ll hop on over. 🙂

    just wanted to let you know i took out ‘the wednesday sisters’ from my library on your suggestion.

    it was an interesting peek into a generation before mine…one on the cusp of such radical changes for women and our nation. i enjoyed the characters–they were well-developed and realistic. it was interesting to watch the friendship evolve between the women and watch the group dynamic. i’m passing the book on to my mom and aunt.

    thanks for telling me about this one!

    I’m going to link to your link roundup in my next Saturday Review post – perpetuating the cycle :-). I’ve been doing these regularly for almost a year now, and have found it addictive and fun. I suspect you will too.

    And I’d missed a few of the items you linked to this week, so thanks for posting them!

    Thank you . There are a couple of things here I’d missed on my own.

    I really like this feature on your blog. The only drawback….I find myself on the computer hours longer than I said I was going to be on!! LOL!!!

    Nice! I was going to do this round up thing this week. I even saved your post from last week so I could steal your picture (I was gonna ASK!). And I kept forgetting and ended up with ONE post saved. Maybe next week…

    This is fantastic. I’ve only been home one day this week, so I didn’t participate – I hope to be back with it next week.

    I like the weekly round up idea. Thanks for the great links. I hope to get to them all, but the Nekkid circus protester was great.

    I don’t know if this qualifies as exciting for everyone else, but it is for me. I’ve moved my blog to my own URL and have had it professionally designed. I’d love for you and your readers to check it out – I’m now at http://www.literatehousewife.com.
