Links: Prison, Books, Marriage, and more!

Nifty Doctor Who inspired glass etchings. - if you need a gift for the Anglophilic nerd in your life. (or the many Anglophilic nerds in your life, if you have my life)

My Day in Prison - on Christian fiction and prisoners.

Christians and The Hunger Games - best review of the book I've read yet.

Byron's daughter was the first computer programmer. Who knew?

Total Effect and the Hunger Games - on choosing what you read

Who Saved a Wretch Like Me - Anne, as normal, being awesome:
Being married is just like any other endeavor. If you leave the hard work aside and don't attend to it, it becomes very big hard work. If you don't teach your two year old that she may not say 'no' to you, nor run away when you say to 'come here', nor fulfill every evil and rebellious desire of her tiny black heart, you eventually have a big huge teenage toddler whose heart is just as black but now everyone can see it. In marriage, if you don't come to mutually hard won agreements on the meanings of words, if you do not work very hard to quickly forgive and let things go, if you do not practice constantly putting the other person ahead of yourself, eventually you will have a big mess on your hands and come limping into the church office.

Those links on the hunger games were really interesting! When I picked up the first book in the trilogy, I didn't know anything about the story at all, or even that it was a trilogy. I started reading it, and was kind of disgusted at the story line, but of course like most books I read, I was sucked in and then finished out the series in a couple of days. That being said, I'm not entirely sure this should be categorized as young adult fiction. Sometimes I think people assume that if kids or teens are the center of the plot, it is meant for kids or teens.

Completely unrelated, but you have won a copy of the 321 Stop e-book from my blog. Can you please e-mail me at so that I can send you the info you need to get your book? Thanks!

I knew about Ada, but not that she was Lord Byron's daughter!
