Links: Wonderful Community Submissions


Workspace with computer, journal, books, coffee, and glasses.Hello, everyone! It’s Wednesday Links time and this edition is brought to you by readers like you! Seriously, most of today’s links came in by submission from the community. Keep ’em coming!

It’s mid-May and my allergies have made an appearance. So far, they aren’t as bas as previous years, but dry eyes are a new symptom and while my meds are working, I hate that stuffy head feeling.

Ellen sent this one – thanks, Ellen! The New York Times has the “top books” from 2000-2023. Ellen notes there are over 3,000 titles and she only counted eight romances among them. Do you have thoughts on the list?

Heather S. let us know that another romance bookstore opened up, this time in Panama, Florida! Heather said:

Half of the store is used books, mostly fiction of various types, and the other half is mostly romance – contemporary, dark, fantasy, etc. Lots of indie authors.

I love a used book section; it feels like such a scavenger hunt. Heather also sent in a photo:

Bookish Boutique storefront. A white stone storefront with large windows and a pink framed door.

In Cosmopolitan, Meaghan Wray writes about the treatment of fat people on reality TV. Obviously, trigger warnings here for discussion of weight, weight shaming, and weight loss.

EC Spurlock sent us this OwlCam! The two owls are named Barney Rubble and Betty White. There are also some that are due to hatch; they may have already started.

Don’t forget to share what cool or interesting things you’ve seen, read, or listened to this week! And if you have anything you think we’d like to post on a future Wednesday Links, send it my way!
