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.
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!
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.
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.
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. 🙂
