Weekly links & wrap-up (June 1, 2014)

Happy June! I have a lot of exciting things going on this month, including ALA Annual in Las Vegas on the 27th and the start if my library’s summer reading program in two weeks. (More on those things later.) Woohoo!

My internet is going to be gone for most of here month, which means blogging will be somewhat sporadic as I try to figure out scheduling and writing on the go and finding wifi hotspots to upload things I’ve written and scheduled. Fun times!

No internet also means more reading time! I have been carrying my Kindle around with me lately, which has been great for my shoulders but less so for conquering the physical suspect of my TBR pile. I’m hoping to read at least ten TBR books in June, including five paper books.

And finally, I’d like to get my personal living space to look less like somewhere a lazy bear would live and more like my bedroom again. Sheesh.

What exciting things do you have planned for June?

The Book Smugglers interviewed author Gene Luen Yang back in March; this interview is partly why I wanted The Shadow Hero in my book collection!


H.P. Lovecraft was super racist. SUPER RACIST. There’s no debating this, y’all. The proof is in the pudding and by pudding I mean his letters which he wrote himself.


Ever wondered how sponsored blog posts work, and/or what you should do if ever you want to have them on your blog? This old but good post from Rock n Roll Bride explains everything.

  1. Okay, so I knew HP Lovecraft was racist, but I did not fully appreciate HOW racist he was. That Racialicious article quoted some things that I couldn’t believe any human person would put into writing. (I know I know it was different times.)
