Weekly Link Round-Up (May 17)

Here's what I read last week.

Being Social

Meryl's Notes Blog has some tips on how to join a conversation on Twitter.

Amy (My Friend Amy), Meghan (Medieval Bookworm), and Michele (Reader's Respite) have started the Book Blog Social Club. It's a place available for everyone to use to host online social events.

Summer Fun

Amy wants to know what you'd like to watch on DVD this summer. She's hoping to organize a discussion.

Lisa from Books on the Brain is helping to put together a summer book club. Check it out and think about joining in.

Robin from Around the Island is hosting Summer Stock Sunday. It's a chance to share photographs of "your barbecues, your beaches, your cannonballing kids, that island sunset, an old pair of flip flops, anything that says summer to you." Sounds like fun.


Nicole from Linus's Blanket reviewed Nine Lives: Death and Life in New Orleans by Dan Baum. It's a very personal look into how the hurricanes have affected the city. Nicole says: "If you love reading about different communities and enjoy getting a glimpse into people’s lives then you will truly enjoy this book."

Carrie from Books and Movies reviewed The Blue Notebook by James A. Levine. This is on my TBR and so I was interested in what Carrie thought: "Levine has crafted a heartbreakingly realistic book full of the worst that humanity is capable of inflicting on one of its own."

Shelly from Write for a Reader did a fabulous job promoting Children's Book Week. Please take the time to check her celebration. You'll find reviews, interviews, giveaways, and more.

Jen from Devourer of Books reviewed Every Last Cuckoo by Kate Maloy. I have this book in my TBR and will be reading it for my book club in July. This sounds like a super book and great club choice: "as ridiculous as it may sound, the book was a like a cozy old sweater. " Isn't that a great way to describe a book?

Thanks for the links! Otherwise I probably wouldn't have heard of half of these.

I have saved the Twitter post to my favorite places. I still haven't quite perfected the knack of tweets.

I'm doing the summer book thing with Lisa. It should be fun!

Great wrap-up! I loved checking out the links I'd missed... and I had missed a lot.
