Links I love

I wanted to share some of the links I've come across this week.

As a future librarian, I love this article:  Why The Next Big Pop-Culture Wave After Cupcakes Might Be Libraries. 

My husband and I dream of starting our own used bookstore some day.  This article about independent bookstores is full of inspiration.

Bookstore Bingo: this article and twitter trend makes me shake my head.

Brimful Curiosities is giving away a book of your choice.

Knitting and Sundries is giving away books of your choice. 
Viva la Fashion is giving away a Target gift card.
Confessions of a Bookaholic is giving away a Sarah Dessen book pack. 
Lovely Rita Ann is giving away a gift card. 
My World.. in words and pages is giving away several prizes.
Bless Their Hearts Mom is giving away Her Fearful Symmetry


  1. Thanks for these fantastic links! I've been thinking of going back to school for Library Sciences, as my English degree seems lonely. I thought I a nice MLS degree might keep it company, so I love the idea of libraries being the next big pop-culture thing. Though like you, and I think like a lot of fellow book bloggers, I would love to run my own bookstore. And bookstore bingo just makes me laugh

  2. Thanks for posting these links. I hope you don't mind if I share the one about libraries with my other Librarian friends. This is just the kind of thing we need to read when we're frustrated with reading about budget cuts, staff cuts, etc. :)
