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.

Oh I know that headache Olivia, but you’re right – it is a great opportunity to clean things up at least. I desperately need to go through my bookmarks, but I’d rather write. Guess I’ll be waiting until I’m forced, (which hopefully isn’t any time soon).
Deanna, I hope you’re never forced! It is pretty devastating to have a hard drive crash. Even if your system is backed up, it’s still so much work to get everything back in order. From the sounds of it, though, it seems like you do have some experience with this. You have my sympathy!
Great link list. Thanks for posting.
