[Book Nerd Links] Lighthearted Literary Links for a Gorgeous Monday

It’s Opening Day! If you live in America, you know what this means. For the rest of you, I’m referring to our national pastime: baseball. This is my excuse for being (otherwise) absent from the blog today. Here are some links to tide you over. See you tomorrow!

  1. Hooray for opening day! I have the St. Louis-Cincinnati game on right now, even though I’m not really a fan of either. It’s so nice to hear the sounds of baseball, plus see so much green grass (and who cares if it’s fake).

    As for the fabulous links, I love them all! And I am especially tickled that “Harriet the Spy” made it onto the kids’ classics list. I adored that book as a kid.


    • I live in the Queen City, so we had the game on as well. This is baseball city USA, after all. My Indians don’t play until later tonight, and that is a road game (so I get to experience a home opening day next week, too!).

      Harriet the Spy is so awesome!


      • We cheer for the Yankees in our house. This is a recent thing. My husband cheered for the Blue Jays since he was a kid, only to be crushed every single year (except for those two great years in the early 90s). About 2-3 years ago he said, “That’s it. I’m cheering for a team that wins once in a while.” So he switched to the Yankees. However, he still secretly follows the Blue Jays – if I ask him how the Blue Jays are doing, he knows exactly what the stats are…followed with a, “Who cares about them, anyway?”


      • Haha! Well, you can imagine how I feel about the Yankees so we won’t go there. 🙂

        I would never stop being an Indians fan. Ever. It’s practically part of my DNA at this point. My husband switched his hockey team allegiance a couple of years ago, after too many years of heartache, so I can understand the impulse to change teams. (Just not the Yankees thing, yo!)


      • 🙂

        My husband is a lifelong Reds fan (and, since we live here, I root for them unless they are playing my team) but if he became a Yankees fan…I’d consider divorce. Friends rooting for the Yankees=okay. Husband rooting for the Yankees=not a good idea!
