A few long weeks ago, for the second time in as many years, my laptop brain fried, and I lost everything.
What a headache.
On the positive side, because it happened before, I had just about everything backed up. On the other positive side, I had been saving all of my bookmarks online because losing your bookmarks once is devastating, losing them a second time would be even more devastating.
If we can squeeze a third positive out of this (and I think we can), in getting my sweet new computer up and running, I decided it was time to clean out some of those bookmarks that haven’t been used since my 9th grade term paper on S.E. Hinton.
Positive #4: I now have a wonderful collection of literary websites to share. This isn’t my complete list; I’ll be adding more as I continue sorting. If you’d like your blog or site listed here, please let me know.
And now on to the links. I’m positive you’ll enjoy them all.
