5. Book Riot
And they say:
We always prefer the book to the movie.
We riot as a team.
We geek out on books, embarrassingly so.
We practice charity.
We miss our subway stop cause the book is that good.
We are non-traditional.
We believe in family (bookshelves and cats count).

6. Dead White Guys
Welcome to my humble abode. What is this "Dead White Guys, Etc." business all about, I hear you wondering. Basicalmente (<---not Spanish) it means that we read/discuss/build up piles of both classics of the literary canon (most of which were written by "dead white guys") AND all the other books we find interesting (..."etc."). See what I did there?
And two quotes from their site:
WE'RE ON TWITTER BECAUSE MARGARET ATWOOD IS ON TWITTER.
YOU'RE ON IT LIKE POE ON OPIUM.
1. And this is not a link, but you can find it on your own if you really want to read about it. The city of Sochi has hundreds, possibly over a thousand stray dogs that are hanging about the construction sites. They've been fed and sheltered by construction workers. Guess what Sochi City Hall (or their equivalent name) has hired a company to do with these dogs before the Olympics begin? That's it. That's the last straw. #boycott (See the Washington Post for the horrible details.) A friend sez: "It's really just a precursor to what they're going to do with the gays." Indeed.
