Before I share links to interesting articles, which is typically what I do in the "Food for Thought" section, I just have to say that The Brothers Karamazov has been testing my reading fortitude/boring me to tears. I am still so excited about The Classics Club Challenge! My big decision is to put Dostoevsky to the side for now and pick up something inviting like Three Men In A Boat written by Jerome K. Jerome.
I have to share this link with you, written by and posted on one of my favorite book blogs, Every Book and Cranny. She so eloquently articulated her thoughts regarding "book blogging, responsibility, and community" that it is definitely worth reading. I also greatly appreciated her being able to put into writing my exact feelings on the topic: http://everybookandcranny.wordpress.com/2012/05/04/a-blogging-manifesto-sort-of/
Here's another great article worth reading:

Laura at Scattered Figments did a great post about using Pinterest for books. She uses hers to pin books that she has reviewed. I, too, use Pinterest for books: "Favorite Books" (http://pinterest.com/bethdiiorio/books-i-love/) and "Bookish Things" (http://pinterest.com/bethdiiorio/bookish-things/). If you need an invite to establish a Pinterest account, let me know and I'll send you one. (I tried to go through Pinterest to request an invitation, waited two months, and still hadn't heard back. Luckily a Twitter friend sent me an invite and I got right in).
