Things of Note:
It was a most excellent long weekend (more about that tomorrow), and today is off to a good start. I am caught up on work stuff and email, and am now getting caught up on blog stuff. I even have a few posts *scheduled*! It feels nice to be back on top of things. 🙂
Ian is working late shift this week, so I have evenings to myself/free. Sometimes that’s nice and sometimes it’s a bummer. Like when there’s an evening event I want to go to but my go-to outing partner is working. So, anyone in/around Austin care to go to this with me on Friday? Should be interesting, and it’s free!
How’s your week going, fellow internet dwellers?
I love these roundups. I always find such good reading material! Bookmarking to read during lunch. 🙂
Yay! Glad you like them/they are useful. 😀
I enjoyed the one about YA sex a lot. It is important!
And the one about etsy was a good read, definitely has me thinking
I agree! I’ve never understood why people make such a big fuss about sexuality in YA books. Teens are already thinking about it all the time anyway, haha. Might as well give them a different way to think about it, hopefully in a form benefiting from the author’s (hopefully) greater experience/wisdom in such matters.
