Saturday Good Reads

If you weren’t totally mesmerized by a congressman committing bad, bad public relations last week, you might have discovered there were some wonderful things being posted on the web. Like the excitement of opening a long-awaited book of poetry, of when all your good intentions blow up and you make a mess of things, or when a reader has a conniption fit because you killed a dog – in a novel, or simply a gentle breath. It was another good week online.

Thanks for the links Glynn. The one about Christian marketing was quite valuable. I'd been struggling with that one!

So many good reads! and such an honor to be included among them. Thank you, Glynn.

When there is so much worth reading, as you show here, not paying attention to the nonsense online is easy.

Thank you for including me in your shout-outs.
