Friday Links

Happy Friday! I’m dropping and dashing today, since I’m actually scheduling this post an hour before leaving for the airport. I hope everyone who’s participating in the December Writing Challenge is roaring full steam ahead, and that all of you have wonderful plans for the weekend. This week’s links are a bit heavy on favorite book lists, in case anyone needs to do some last minute holiday shopping. Enjoy, and happy writing!
