Links and Miscellany

In lieu of a real post today, I thought I’d post a couple of things that I’ve seen around the internet this week.  Enjoy your Saturday! (I’m in class all day. Gross.)

1. Kristen Bell and her love of sloths:

I feel like this is really cute (and you guys know I love me some Kristen Bell), but I also think it’s kind of scary.  What do you guys think?

2. Stacked on ARCs and etiquette

I’ve read several blog posts about this issue this week, but I think Stacked’s article talks about it in the most articulate and all-encompassing way.  As a blogger and future librarian, this concerns me.  I wasn’t at ALA Midwinter (I can’t afford it), but I’m embarrassed for some of the bloggers who were.  It seems like a big sticky mess, and I feel like this is not a problem that’s going away on its own.

3. John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars has been optioned.

We shouldn’t be surprised, right?  I haven’t read it yet, but I got a copy waiting on my kindle.

4. The Komen Foundation has pulled funding for breast cancer screenings at all Planned Parenthoods.

This isn’t a political issue, you guys.  This is way bigger than that.  What Komen is doing is totally pathetic, totally weak, and totally unacceptable, no matter what your stance is on choice.  Speak up.

There has been some changes worth following: What Komen Actually Said (WaPo); Komen Reversal (Jezebel)

5. I shouldn’t be shocked by this, but I am. 

When is White History Month Tumblr

Shocked, horrified, and absolutely embarrassed.
