Weekly Link Round-Up (April 12)

Here are some things I read this week.

Giveaways and Challenges

Amy from Passages to the Past has a super giveaway: The winner will get a signed copy of The Tory Widow plus a revolutionary America survival kit! How cool is that? There's still time to enter.

Carrie from Books and Movies has five copies of Jantsen’s Gift by Pam Cope and Aimee Molloy to give away. This memoir of a mother's struggle to find peace after the death of her son sounds inspirational and moving.

You know, of course, that April is the month of Earth Day. Did you know that this year is the fortieth anniversary of the event? In celebration, Rebecca of Lost in Books is holding an Earth Day Challenge with prizes! It started Friday, but you can easily catch up. It's a super idea, and I hope you all take a look.

Molly at My Cozy Book Nook has a fun Summer Vacation challenge coming up. It'll go from May 22 to September 7. There are prizes involved! Go check it out.

Fun Weekly Features

If you are more organized than I am, you might want to play along with What Are You Reading on Mondays at J. Kaye's Book Blog. Every Monday, participants summarize what they accomplished the week before and set their goals for the week to come. It's one way to stay on track and make it through your TBR piles.

You have to take a break from reading once in a while -- really! Try Tube Talk Tuesdays with Amy from My Friend Amy. She and Elizabeth are talking TV. This week it was the pilot episode of Supernatural. Tune in and join the discussion.

On hump day, give yourself a break and share some Midweek Morsels with Kristina at Kritina's Favorites. Coming up this week is a chance to share your successful Easter recipes. I bet you could share Passover recipes too.

On Thursdays try Thursday Thunks. This fun meme consists of a series of questions or fill-ins that require short answers -- humor is welcome!

On Fridays try Refer a Book on Shannon's blog Confuzzled Books. Just recommend a good read for a chance to win a book!

Tech Help

Have you ever been confused about Excel? Worry no more because Kris at Not Enough Books has written a great post that will help you become a spread sheet queen!

Reading Event

April 16th is Support Teen Literature Day, and Shelly from Write for a Reader is encouraging everyone to participate. It's really easy: Just drop a YA book off at a public place. Please see Shelly's post for instructions and to learn more about this fantastic program.

Just for Fun

Warning: before reading Jen's post at Devourer of Books put down any food or drinks. You would not believe what keyword searches lead to her blog. I don't want to know why this search takes you to Jen: "i know he has some parts and im not sure how dominant they are." Eeeeeuuuuuu!

Thanks for this weekly guide to what's good enough to go check out. My own explorations must be getting better because I've actually been to Molly's and Jen's. Lol - your Sunday post is not my barometer.

Hope you have a Happy Easter.
