  1. I love this post. I am a sucker for any post which features links (I don’t know what it is but I love them). I like the bookmarks and pinterest boards one. And isn’t it interesting how the TImes best books can be so different from other people’s tastes? I always end up avoiding book lists like that because I feel like that’s what people think I should be reading but doesn’t match what I want to be reading.

      @Becky I wasn’t a fan of the Times list at all, but then again I skew towards genre fiction.

    Pinterest has a lot of interesting book connections. I love the libraries and pictures of old books and book in art.

  3. The Network connections checklist is interesting. I might try it out on small scale just to see how I get on. Great round up, so many things are catching my eye 🙂
