Not Martha

links: misc

If you liked the Hunger Games – Lawrence Public Library. A flow chart of what to read after you’ve finished the Hunger Games. Sent to my by my very own Scott.

I want more happy, well-designed blogs like 101 Cookbooks or Enjoying the Small Things so that I can pretend for short periods of time that the world is a delightful place. | Ask MetaFilter. The question asker calls it “empathy-happiness porn” which I think is wonderful. A great collection of sites and, eep, Not Martha is included. (Aw, thanks!)

    Love that hunger games book list! Finally got my husband to read more than ESPN with Hunger Games, not letting him off the hook when he’s done! ;)

    Mary f – Aw, thank you so much! I’m glad you like it.

    Susan – I’m consistently impressed with how much information you manage to get up on your site considering how busy you all are with real life!

    That book chart is great! As a new teacher, I’m always looking for books to recommend to my students. Happy to see I already have a number of the titles on my shelves – just haven’t had a chance to read them yet… It’s been a big change going from lit to young adult fiction. :-)

    Bummed that Hunger Games list didn’t include Ready Player One. It was such a great read, and from the second I opened it it screamed Hunger Games to me–but with a totally different theme/decade/hero. I highly recommend it.
