Weekly Recap + Links of the ‘net

This has been a fairly decent reading week. 2 reviews posted in one week, I think that’s some kind of a new record for me. =p Loads of books read with the baby bookworm and loads of new books I’m still making my way through (eyes on you Joseph Heller).

LibraryThing posted their Early Review titles this month, and for the first time in a long time, there is nothing that captures my interest. Sad. But, in the meantime, I signed up for Penguin Book’s First to Read program, where I can receive early copies of titles. Their system is a little bit inventive in that there are all sorts of ways in which I can gather points to help me get more books and other stuff for free.

I’m very much enjoying The Big Disconnect and should have a review up next week. As far as non-fiction/parenting guides go, this book is well researched, well-written and does a fantastic job of scaring the pants off of me in regards to raising my child in such a tech-savvy world, particularly in the Bay Area of California, tech central. But more on that next week…
