Friday Link Love

Friday Link LoveTo share some Friday Link Love, here are some of my favorite posts regarding the book-related stuff going on around the internet lately:

  • {Shameless self-promotion alert!}
    I’ve started pinning the books I’ve read for the year to dedicated boards on Pinterest – one for all the adult books, and one for children’s books. I’d love it if you’d follow them and/or repin any that catch your eye.
  • Have you read Jen Hatmaker’s book 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess7 by Jen Hatmaker? (It was one of my favorites for 2012). My friend Adrienne from A Suburban Menagerie is was leading an online study session based on the companion book, The 7 Experiment: Staging Your Own Mutiny Against Excess. It starts February 4, so you’ve got plenty of time to get the book still and join in. {Update – her blog is no longer online. The book is great though!}
  • Jessica at Quirky Bookworm has a reading challenge going on: the 2013 Classics Catch-Up Challenge. She’s got a list of assigned titles (with one substitute permitted), and you can choose your level of participation. If you sign-up and read at least 9 of them, you’ll be entered to win an Amazon gift card.
  • Life as Mom has a new format for Booking It this year – instead of assigned books each month, there will be discussions on a variety of books, cohosted by Jessica, Anne, and Carrie. And they’ve included a list of suggested titles too. (With a disclaimer!)
  • If you saw my post yesterday, you’ve already heard about this, but Anne at Modern Mrs Darcy also has a new monthly linkup starting – book reviews inspired by twitter’s 140-character limits. In other words, short and sweet. First one went live Wednesday,but the link-up is still open so there’s time for you to write a post and add it. I originally wasn’t going to participate, but couldn’t resist.

Any other fun book-related stuff going on in internet land? Please share in the comments!
