Meg, of Literary Menagerie, has come up with a new weekly blogging event – Surfing Saturdays. As she says in her announcement post:
"Each Saturday morning, I'll list any links of interest I came across during the past week of surfing and give an update on my reading progress. Play along with me!"
It sounds like a great idea, and although I'm a day late (as usual), I thought I'd give it a try this week. And I guess my first discovery for this week was Surfing Saturdays!
I wasn't able to do a huge amount of web surfing this week because of a surprise attack of carpal tunnel syndrome, but I did do a bit of looking around.
Noticed that one of my favorite blogs, Just a (Reading) Fool, has moved and regrouped; the new blog is called An Unfinished Person (in this unfinished universe).
I'm sure most book bloggers have already discovered this one for themselves. Weekly Geeks is back. As you probably know, its founder, Dewey of The Hidden Side of a Leaf, passed away late in 2008. But the Weekly Geeks event is being continued by loyal followers, and is now up and running at their new website. This week's Geekish activity includes a favorite blog round-up, as well as reading goals and wrap-ups.
I also found another interesting weekly meme – photography, not books this time. That's My World Tuesday is designed to allow participants to show off their photographic skills, and share their little corners of the world.
I'm beginning to get back into the reading groove again, after taking a bit of a breather during the holidays. This week I started Drawers & Booths, by Ara13. Hoping to finish that one up later today. Also reading a couple of titles I started last year: Rest In Pieces, by Rita Mae Brown, and Solaris, by Stanislaw Lem. Now I need to get started on a few of the challenge books I've got lined up for this year, and also finish reviewing the books I read in 2008 – assuming the carpal tunnel doesn't put me out of commission again.
