Weekly Recap / Loads of Links 5/31/2013

 (Books as a seating chart – via Martha Stewart Weddings)

There has actually been some activity on this blog on days other than these Friday recap/link roundups. I’ve finished a couple of books, started some new ones, and read a few pages in others. I’m really struggling to get through Catch-22 and Steinbeck’s The Log on the Sea of Cortez. They are both long, and somewhat boring books. But I love Steinbeck, so I’m determined to keep reading. Catch-22 is one of those “must-read” titles, is it not? I should give it a fair chance.
