Happy Easter to those who will celebrate the holiday this weekend. We celebrate in a secular way with Easter eggs and baskets of goodies (always including a book). Our biggest dream would be a non-rainy Easter here in Seattle where we can actually do our egg hunt outdoors!
If you haven't heard, next Saturday is Dewey's 24- Hour Read-A-Thon. I haven't decided if I will participate or not yet. It always seems a bit competitive which I'm really not into.
Lenore at Presenting Lenore had a great April Fools' Day post about how to build a truly great book blog.
Jacket Copy has a roundup of literary t-shirts. I like the Threadless owl one!
The New York Times laments the end of book covers with the increased use of e-readers. I agree with the point that seeing the cover will help you remember a book when you search for it later. So even if you get up the courage ask someone what they are reading on their device, there's a good chance you won't remember it if you want to find it at some point.
In my first Starred Saturdays post I featured these salted brown butter krispy treats. I finally made them yesterday and they are wonderful. The brown butter gives them a bit more depth of flavor and the little bits of sea salt are a pleasant surprise. Um, I would share but they are gone already.
My favorite photos of the week are of the current volcanic eruption on Iceland. I think that "lava" is one of my favorite colors! You should definitely head to the links and see more pics. (via io9 and The Daily Mail)
Hop, hop, hop,
