Misc. Links

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.

Resource for finding remembered books: Here’s a great list from the New York Public Library of websites and resources to help track down books, especially books that may be only partially remembered.
