January’s Website Wonders

Near the end of every month I share my favorite websites that I came across – anything to do with writing and reading. Sometimes, I add a few websites that simply inspired me. Below there are two topics – writing and reading. I didn’t have as many as last month, but I hope you enjoy them as much as I did. If you like them, you can follow my Facebook author page where I share them live.

Writing:

45 ways to avoid using the word ‘very’: Ever heard the advice of Mark Twain? “Substitute ‘damn’ every time you’re inclined to write ‘very;’ your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be.” Well, here are other ways to avoid “very”

Reading: 

Kansas City Public Library Missouri: Okay. Okay. I know I live in Kansas, but this library is beyond neat. It’s built with giant books!

28 Beautiful Quotes About Libraries: My favorite library line? “Libraries store the energy that fuels the imagination. They open up windows to the world and inspire us to explore and achieve, and contribute to improving our quality of life. Libraries changes lives for the better.” – Sidney Sheldon

Americans prefer print books over e-books: I can admit that I fall into this category. My favorite type is a hardback, but I still find myself reading paperbacks and e-books often. I really want library in my home when I’m older.

And the photo on the right can be found on this page, where author, Melissa Foster, asked, “What would you use for the title of this pic WITHOUT using the word SUSPEND’?”

Again, I hope you enjoyed these websites as much as I did. I normally have more, but all the news I announced last time kept my January busy. Thank you for all of your congrats and emails! I really enjoy talking with everyone, and I look forward to talking to more of you as we continue traveling on this reading/writing adventure.

  1. My favorite library quote: “Libraries will get us through times of no money better than money will get us through times of no libraries.”

    I don’t know who said it. It was on a poster inside the staff bathroom at a school where I used to work.
