The EndWelcome back to the 13 Days of Misfortune! If you’re new to this, then let me tell you that this post is about a 13 day long marathon event where my book club is tackling one book of A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket a day! If you made it all the way through this special, way to go! I almost didn’t myself.

Super secret thing is happening TONIGHT!

The Book of Lost Things

So you all may have heard about these super secret thing I’ve been teasing about. Well, it’s happening TONIGHT. What is, you ask?

A Google+ hangout with my new book club, Bibliomancy for Beginners!

That’s right! If you want to see me and three friends make fools out of ourselves talking about books – this week it’s John Connolly’s The Book of Lost Things – then clear your calendar at 8:30 PM tonight. If you can’t, no worries, because I’ll be posting the recording here on the blog with my actual review of the book later on.

You should really come hang out, though. It’s going to be awesome. I’ll be updating this post with the link around 8 PM!

And now excuse us as we have some technical difficulties…


Top Ten Blogs/Sites I Read That AREN’T about Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a feature hosted by the Broke and the Bookish.

So this week’s Top Ten Tuesday is a little different! It’s NOT about books! Let’s see if I can make you interested anyways…

1. Facebook

Seriously, are you surprised? you shouldn’t be. 😛

2. Twitter

Again, no surprise there. I LIVE on my Hootsuite, tracking down book giveaways. I maaaaaay have an addiction to that.

3. YouTube

Not for the reasons you might think! I actually look up more show promos on here than anything else. Last thing I looked up? The new James Bond trailer!

4. Duotrope’s Digest

This is a site for writers, where they can track their submissions to magazines. When I have stories out (which I don’t at this moment) I’m checking it 60 times a day for absolutely no reason.

5. Yahoo! Sports

MY RANGERS ARE IN THE PLAYOFFS! Plus one of the baseball dudes does spectacular MLB power rankings. It’s my homepage, so it’s also the fastest sports access. 😛

6. Television Without Pity

I adore the photo galleries these guys put together. They are absolutely hysterical, even when they’re about shows I like! There are tons more stuff related to TV on there, but I don’t actually look at anything but the photos.

7. Google

Did you know that if you go to Google Maps and ask for walking directions from The Shire to Mordor, Google will tell you that “One cannot simply walk into Mordor”? Seriously, try it out. It’s AWESOME.

8. Big Fish Games

I am slightly obsessed with hidden object adventure games. And time management games. And those games that are hybrids of the two. And– uh, Big Fish just happens to have some fantastic games on it and I get bored sometimes. 😛

9. Netflix

I just recently developed an addiction to Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse. Having finished it in a week, I have decided that the mind of Joss Whedon is a terrifying, confusing place that makes up the best-worst things ever. (BUFFY FOREVER!)

10. Yahoo! Movie Trailers

I have a thing with movie trailers! I am like a movie trailer guru. It is from Yahoo! Movies I learn my wisdom, so you may start there, young grasshopper.
