  1. I don’t know why, but one day I might need this, so I bookmarked 5 Apps for Getting a Temporary Burner Phone Number
  2. 12 New Fall Releases for Stephen King Fans caught my eye since I’m a huge King fan. I plan on getting a copy of Six Scary Stories, Selected and Introduced by Stephen King for sure.
  3. OK – although I’m a lover of audiobooks, I can relate to everything else in Confessions of a Behind-the-Times Book Nerd … I don’t even keep books in my house – and donate (most) to the library after I’m done reading them.
  4. Yasssss … 13 Ways Book Lovers Make More Time for Reading.
  5. Are you using any of these 5 Incredible Instagram Tools (Windows & Mac Desktop Clients Too)? The ability to see pics. on a bigger screen is very appealing.

  6. In case you’re looking, here’s a set of Blog Planner Printables I came across. Of course, we’re digital around here and use Evernote As A Blogging Editorial Calendar.
  7. You Know You’re a Book Blogger When … “your library card is in the most accessible part of your wallet”. Yup!
  8. Have you watched any of these 10 binge-worthy TV series based on books?
  9. The tips in How to Turn Around a Bad Day work for me – especially set a timeline. Definitely take some time to wallow in self-pity … and then start trying to get over it.
  10. Everyday Luxuries inspired me to write a post about some of my own. What are some of your everyday luxuries?
  11. If you’re into music and reading, check out 25+ Mixtapes for Books.

    Ha…I had to laugh at #7, because I’m not even sure where my library card is. I haven’t used it for years! I have my card number memorized and that is good for checking out overdrive books. They’ve also been completely willing to just punch in the number when I am in the library. About 3 years ago, I scanned the bar code into the Key Ring app on my iPhone and started showing that. Then in the past year, my library branch started offering self-checkout and Key Ring is officially supported. Ironically, though, the bar code scanned into the ‘official link’ doesn’t always work and I often have to use the one I entered manually instead. Go figure…

    ah thanks so much Tanya for including my mixtapes post! It was a lot of fun to put together. And wow – every time you do this roundup I get lost on link journey {always fun & always educational!} Thanks for putting this together each week!

  5. Great post, I especially like the link for turning around a bad day. There are times when I need those tips because it’s too easy to get stuck in the funk of a bad day. And I like the link for burner phone numbers, who knows when you might need that? I like random links like that.

  6. Ha – I was totally that behind the times book nerd until I started blogging! And even now I’m not remotely caught up, but at least now have figured out how to work audiobooks into my life.
