Okay, I confess. I do a fair amount of wandering around the web when I should be writing. Bad, bad me.
So, in order to claim I’m making use of my time instead of idly surfing, I thought I’d share some of my Web finds with you as well as a couple of books I’m reading that I’m sure you will want to look up.
I intend the Monday Mashable (#MondayMashable) to be a regular feature, but as the road to Hell is supposed to be paved with good intentions, I’m making no promises. If you’ve found a fun or interesting website, blog, or book that you’d like to share (including your own – don’t be shy!) please put it in a comment below and I’ll add it to the next Monday Mashable list!
Web Places I visited this week – You might like them, too!
