A few of my favorite links:
NPR Books: Great reviews, lists, and miscellany for the book lover.
Michael L. Printz Winners and Honor Books: A great resource for finding the best in young adult literature.
Io9: A round-up of all things nerdy, geeky, and weird. Tagline: “We come from the future”.
Tor.com: “Science fiction. Fantasy. The universe.”
Outlander Book Club: (Exactly what it sounds like.) A bunch of smart readers having fantastic discussions on all topics Outlander-related, from silly to serious and everything in between.
Bookshelf Porn: (Not at all what it sounds like.) Because I can never get enough of looking at amazing bookshelves.
