Across the Blogosphere:

Words have meaning and consequences. This is a thoughtful post about this.

An interesting idea that has me thinking about ways to support fellow bloggers and good writing. And maybe get some cash to buy myself a cuppa joe.

Across the Web:

Speaking of good writing, here is a lovely little essay about Death Valley.

And finally, in honor of The Girls in the Picutre which I won in #GoodreadsGiveaway, here is a link to one of my favorite podcasts You Must Remember This. This podcast focuses on telling the stories of old Hollywood. Here is the link to the homepage. You can subscribe to this podcast on iTunes and other podcast apps. The series of podcaasts about Charles Manson are fascinating if you are interested in that infamous murderer.

That was my reading life in Febraury. Let me know what you think in the comments below. Happy reading in March, y’all.

  1. Oh wow! What a great reading month… I’ve also had a good February – perhaps it’s because of the grotty weather:)). It was heartening to see you had no DNFs this month. Have a great March, too:)

  2. I’m honored by your linkage. Thank you.

    Double thanks for the podcast info. I am a sucker for old Hollywood.

    I haven’t even read 15 books in the last two months. I’m in awe of your numbers.
