Weekly Link Round-Up (March. 22)

Here's what I read this week.

Giveaway for Women's Health Awareness

Marta from Marta's Meanderings is giving away two (yep, two) freshwater pearl bracelets to help promote women's heart health as part of the Cheerios Circle of Healthy Heart and WomanHeart programs. Find out more about making sure all women get access to adequate health care. (Note: the link is to Marta's home page because I'm having trouble getting a working direct link.)

A Closer Look at Books

Do you know The Very Hungry Caterpillar had an anniversary? Check out how much Eric Carle's books have meant to Jen at Devourer of Books.

Farrah at The Book Faery Reviews spotlighted author/artist R. Scot Johns. Johns's guest post gives us a fascinating glimpse in how digital technology can be used to produce beautiful books.

AMACON Books Blog has a great new feature called Anatomy of a Book Cover. Learn about the design process.

Booksquare blog is all about "Dissecting the publishing industry with love and skepticism." Lots of good information about where the book industry is and where it should be going.

Getting to Know You

Trish at Hey Lady! Whatcha Readin'? is putting out feelers for a book blogger get-together and visit to Powell's. I can't tell you how much I would love to be able to do this.

Remember Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury? Elizabeth at As Usual, I Need More Bookshelves has a super feature based on the book. It's a great way to learn more about each other.

Natasha (aka Maw Books) has a feature called Reader Spotlight in which she interviews fellow book bloggers. It's great fun.

New Features, Conversation, Review

Amy at My Friend Amy has a new feature called So Cal Lit Scene in which she is going to review as many bookstores as she can within driving distance of her home. I bet she does a little shopping too! It's a great idea.

Do you drink tea? Then here's the weekly event for you! Anastasia at Birdbrain(ed) Book Blog has a new Thursday Tea feature "showcasing a tea and the book I’m reading while I’m drinking it." She asks others to share in the fun.

You know how what I think about audiobooks, but what do you think? Carrie at Books and Movies discusses the joys of audiobooks and shares her top twelve listens. Help her decide what to listen to next.

Wendi has a great review of Everyone Is Beautiful by Katherine Center (whom she is interviewing tomorrow) up on Wendi's Book Corner. This sounds like a must read: Wendi says it's "a beautiful book that is full of life, and not just some fantasy life, but a real life, and one that I can relate to."
Some of these links were part of a link-sharing group. To find out more, e-mail Amy of My Friend Amy. If you want to do this on your own, feel free to use my button.

Thanks so much for posting the Thursday Tea Feature -- what a great idea! I have just recently become interested in a "good" cup of tea, and I am thrilled to know about Stash's online resource.

Great links this week. Enjoy your Sunday.

I love Elizabeth's 451 Fridays -- It has been great fun reading all the posts.

You find some of the best blogs to explore! I'm especially looking forward to checking out the Thursday Tea site. :O)

The book-blogger get-together sounds awesome, it's just too far for me to go with all my financial troubles right not, just going to BEA will be a strain (I'm still psyched I'm going though)

I say this every week but it's true - I really like this weekly feature but you send me to so many great places that I forget to come back and say thanks. Maybe in the future I should just say thanks to begin with. I love the tea place and the audio place and the blog get-together and . . . well, all of it. Thanks again.

Thanks for including the AMACOM Books Blog in your roundup. Our designer will be thrilled. We had great feedback about the feature and will be putting up more soon. I love your blog and look forward to reading it more. Just let me know if you are interested in anything from AMACOM.

Thanks again,

Alice Northover
