Just because I’m busy holding book giveaways, doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten some links to entertain you this weekend! After all, everyone gets to enjoy these, not just a few individuals whose names get pulled out of the hat (or rather the random number generator).
I have an interesting assortment of sites this week, so I hope you find them fun and useful and intriguing. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, filled with books and writing. Enjoy!
