Friday Links

Happy holiday weekend to those of you in the U.S., and happy Friday to everyone else! I am proud to say I’m avoiding the Black Friday shopping madness, though I wish anyone braving the crowds the best of luck. Instead, I kicked off my morning with a rather damp morning run (it started raining about fifteen minutes in), followed by a hot shower and a huge mug of coffee. I’m just dropping by to share some links with you all, and then I’m going to retire to my couch with more coffee and my copy of Donna Tartt’s THE GOLDFINCH. Wishing you all a wonderful day, whether you’re shopping up a storm, frantically working on your NaNo novel word count, or watching the clock for the start of the weekend. Enjoy!
