A Week End Roundup

Happy Friday all! It's been a crazy busy week for me, so I'm looking extra forward to the weekend and some down time. It's been awhile since I've done a round-up of info on a Friday because the Five on Friday has been on hiatus. It's not back yet, but I'm going to be working on that soon, so watch for an all new season of fun, short, personal interviews soon.

In the meantime, here are some fun things for you to check out:

My friend Lauren has started a feature on Fridays called "Strictly Positive." If you haven't seen it yet, be sure to stop over to her site, Malcolm Avenue Review, and see what's good in the world this week.

Pop Culture Nerd has our Nerdy Special List for May posted. You can see why I'm going to be reading a book about octopuses soon as well as what I'm recommending for May.

If you're as excited about the newest Craig Johnson as I am, then you should pre-order the book so you can enter to win this amazing prize.

Congratulations to this year's Edgar and Agatha Award winners, as well as the Anthony nominees.

Some contests for you to check out:

Lesa has a "British Connection" giveaway this week. Kind of appropriate with the new princess and all, right?

Criminal Element has a Global Getaway Sweepstakes as well as a chance to win a copy of Deadly Desires at Honeychurch Hall.

Friday Reads is giving away a copy of Cry Father by Benjamin Whitmer.

That's about it from me today. If you have some fun things we should check out around the web, share them with us in the comments.

Have a super weekend and HAPPY READING!

So I was lying in bed around 5 this morning and I saw your post email come through and I thought, "Oh, good, Jen's Friday post is up!" and then I see a shout out to the SP post, what a nice surprise, thank you! <----wow, that's a runon sentence. Lots of good stuff here, but I'll be happy to get the Five on Friday back, it's a favorite!
