Linkeration for your Clicking Pleasure

Thanks to Kelly Maher for the link: Diesel has a mess of public domain ebooks available for download. Anyone looking for Alice in Wonderland or Anne of Green Gables, enjoy like a happy ebook glutton.

Brandi sent over a rather startling example of, well, evolution. Based on this article about Florida science teachers faced with teaching evolution to a classroom of students who enter the classroom convinced that science and their faith operate at cross purposes, a romance novel cover parody was born.

As a service to science, I’d like to inform you that coffee snorted up one’s sinus cavity, based on my empirical evidence, hurts like a mother.

Hey. That image looks familiar. But, um, did you have to cover up the blue lady? She’s my favorite.

From StarOpal: do you have a librarian that you love? Nominate him or her for the 2008 I Love My Librarian Award, and your favorite booksmith could win $5,000. Public librarians are eligible from now until October 1, and librarians from academic circles (university or college libraries, etc) can be nominated after September 2.

Taylor Reynolds (can I say again I’m glad you’re home safe?) send over this link, with the following message: “I was introduced to this website and was specifically told, “You’ll like this because you’re smart.” Cool. That was two hours ago. I’ve done no work since….” The Badass of the Week is exactly that. Historical and fictional badasses profiled in irreverent style. If you’re looking for inspiration for an iconoclastic alphamale, have a tour. But like Taylor says, you’re not getting that two hours back.

Wanna see two ladies on a really stripey couch, one of whom is Ann Aguirre, and one of whom is me? Back in April, I was asked to interview Ann Aguirre, and we got into a reaaaalllllyyyy long conversation about the world built in her books and the future of her Sirantha Jax series. You can see them all online – and let me say, if I were sofa shopping, that’s not the sofa I would choose. It was shiny and slippery and very stripey. But for a hotel sofa, not bad.

If you’re looking for travel plans, Anne of Green Gables is 100 and PEI is bracing for the tourism. I want to visit PEI like you have no idea, but mostly because I hear it’s breathtakingly gorgeous, and because I want to check out their absolutely amazing waste management program for myself. Thanks to EW for the link on Anne’s 100th.

    The fact that they included the A-10 Warthog as a Badass of the Week, got me hooked. Used to love to see those things fly off our local air base everyday. Man I miss that thunder.

    And, yup, that website will be a time waster for me. sigh.

    Love the pardoy cover.

    Since it is link day, can I share one? My friend sent me this link a few days ago, and OMG…. hilarious. Why Women Hate Men- The Blog  BTW…. Not work safe

    Makes me oh so thankful that I met DH when I did, and have never had to try to navigate the perils of internet dating. I could really see a friendship brewing between WWHM and cover snark… oh the possibilities :)

    The Badass site will prove to be a monumental time waster.  I love it.  Thanks for sharing!

    And there goes my time to clean house—Goddess bless you, Stitch and Bitch, that was close.  If it wasn’t for that ‘Badass’ site, I might have had to vacuum!  (And soda snorted out your nose isn’t much better.)

    And I didn’t get the lawn mowed. Or the old flowers and weeds whacked. Or do laundry. 

    But I did find time to hit the bookstore (one of our Borders is going out of business and is 40% off- why? Because the owner wanted to double the rent- after we remodled it last year. Money grubbing asshole). And I cleaned my car.

    But no housework. LOL Thanks Bad-ass!!

    I live in Nova Scotia, a stone’s throw from the Confederation Bridge (well, depending on how good your arm is), and I haven’t been to PEI since I was about fourteen.  I should probably go again sometime.

    Thanks, Sarah! It’s nice to be back in the real world again. Now I’m just waiting for my man to get back in November and all will be right with the world again.

    My favorite Badass is the Headless Horseman. High-freaking-larious!!!!!

    All right, bitches, where is that made over novel from?  The Darwin cover one.  I swear I saw that SOMEWHERE and now I have an unhealthy urge to read it.  Oh do tell meeeeee!
