TTT: Favorite Blog Posts

With the delightful bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish moving on to other things, TTT is now hosted by just one of their contingent, That Artsy Reader Girl .  If you want to quadruple the size of your TBR AND find a bunch of great book blogs to follow head on over and check it out!

The topic this week is: Favorite Book Blogs or Bookish Websites.

Well, my favorite book blogs are already listed in the sidebar, and I wouldn't feel very good about whittling it down to ten publicly. So I've put together a list of ten terrific articles and blog posts that I've saved on my "Bookworm" board on Pinterest over the years.  For the most part these are NOT from book blogs. My list looked really boring, so I dropped in images I'd saved on the same board as well.  Enjoy exploring!

  • I loved the TTT prompt three years ago in which we each picked the assigned reading for an imaginary course, and this one on Saving the World was one of my favorites.

Can't get out of bed. Send help... or books. Yeah, just books.

  • A recording of Neil Gaiman reading aloud his short story "The Man Who Forgot Ray Bradbury," in honor of Bradbury's 91st birthday.

Quit reading? PREPOSTEROUS!

We're doing the annual "Summer is almost over so we better go do something!" frenzy, which occurs simultaneously with the "School is almost starting so I am all fired up to do a bunch of research and work and organization!" frenzy--SO I may not be around all that much for a week or two. But I'll try to check in when I can. Enjoy these summer days, those of you in the northern hemisphere.
