Literary Link Love: January 2014

At the end of the 2013, I had asked my readers to share opinions on a number of topics and I heard you loud and clear when it came to sharing links.  Throughout the week, I randomly share literary links via Facebook and Twitter.  The links can vary from serious research articles to just silly fun.  Once a month, I will be sharing those links with you here, possibly with a few extras.  Without further ado, I give you the first round-up of Literary Link Love . . .

Americans say they still love their libraries, even if their not using them via PBS  (Unfortunately, the original link no longer works for this article, but I do have a copy of it saved.  Comment with your email address or email me directly if you are interested!)

Bonus Blogging Links

Jen Robinson's Book Page shares a fabulous infographic on Fighting Blog Burnout.

Andi shares two informative posts this last month for fellow bloggers:  How to Keep a Sustainable Blog and 15 Topics for Your Blogging Blues.  Both are bookmark worthy for quick reminders and future reference!
