Butt, is it Art?
2. Words come together in fabulous form on Crystal Clear Proofing: Words Matter Week.
3. This blogger grabbed two spots on today's Roundup, the first is a list of crime conventions across the pond (for me)...And I long to make the trip! UK Spring Crime Festivals from Mystery Fanfare.
4. Second from Janet Rudolph at Mystery Fanfare--a list of Oscar-themed mysteries! (The Academy Awards are tonight, don't forget!)
5. Haute Couture, Ancient Egyptian Style--your favorite ancient Egyptian guru, Stephanie Thornton of Hatshepsut, brings it around to fashion, and oh, is it worth the read!
6. The pet psychic and Thor's hammer...just read. :)
7. Alex J. Cavanaugh comes through with something mind boggling: a decidely low-tech but amazing cause-and-effect video! Watch it, you won't regret the time spent.
8. Ever notice the differences between books published in the U.S. and the UK? Great article here at The Millions, and I'll give credit to Cathy at Kittling Books for pointing the way. She posts a great link roundup on Fridays--click here for this week's list.
leading ladies of Hitchcock (and a small festival for Hitchcock lovers on TCM). This is also a great new-to-me blog on fashion.
10. Elizabeth Spann Craig takes on literacy. Be prepared to get emotional. (And for ways you can help, click on The Literacy Site button in the righthand columb of this blog, or check out The Literacy Project and The National Institute for Literacy.)
11. Author J. Sydney Jones writes about Vienna, and today he introduces an author who puts just as much stock in "place" as "character." I love books like this and am adding Michael Genelin's series (and Jones'!) to my TBR list. You can read about both here. (Lots of other author's who write this way on Jones' blog--check them out.)
12. I don't know why this site is new to me, since Wendy (aka Quillfeather) obviously follows many of your blogs, but it is! Today I discovered W.M. Morell's Musings from Down Under and a new SciFi author there, Graham Storr. Read Wendy's interview with Storr here.
