Loads of Links 5/18/2013

I’m doing my best to finish at least 1 of the 3 books I’m reading right now and I’ll hopefully have a book review up here by the end of next week. No promises though. In the meantime, here is a new weekly post made-up entirely of interesting links found around the Internet this past week. =) Enjoy your weekend! Photo from favim
