Some of this week’s interesting links:
Beth at Beth Fish Reads started an already hopping discussion about books and authors that don’t get enough attention. The genesis for this post came from this week’s Booking Through Thursday, which asked ‘what’s the best book you’ve never read?‘
My Friend Amy‘s big discussion is also a celebration. She wrote her first book endorsement this week! Of course, being Amy, she turned this event into a really thoughtful discussion on blurbs and endorsements and their place in selling a book to a reader.
Carrie at Books and Movies talked this week about her family’s favorite read-alouds. You’ve got to love her idea of reading to the kids while they’re eating breakfast.
Trish from Hey Lady, Whatcha Readin’? gave us a book review that had me running for my library’s website and my bookmooch wishlist to figure out how to read it. Trish reviewed “The Hunger Games” and it sounds amazing, especially after having read Amy’s review of the same book earlier this week. I will definitely be reading “The Hunger Games” ASAP if BOTH Trish and Amy think it is awesome.

I don’t usually toot my own horn in my link roundups, but I’m doing something this weekend which I think is neat. I’m currently reading the book “Throw Out Fifty Things” and, after I run some errands today, I am going to be following the author’s instructions and trying to declutter our life. You can click here to see my progress throughout the weekend.
