Those of you who follow me on twitter might have noticed I’m been posting a lot of links recently. Sunday Surfing is my new feature (inspired by Chrisbookarama‘s Friday Bookish Buzz, which is one of my favourite features) where I share my favourite links from during the week, about books and blogging.
Plus a little about what’s happened on the blog this week. Lets get started.
Around the web this week
Poet Roger McGough is releasing children’s poem plates to encourage children to eat. And they’re free!
Reasons to buy used books. Hasn’t really convinced me to be honest, I like shiny new books.
4 Libraries changing lives. A bit IT heavy, but that’s a bog part of libraries now.

Writer who wrote about her escape from the Taliban has been killed. Warning this article may be distressing
Proceeds from the sale of A Beautiful Truth with go to charity Save the Chimps. You can read my review of A Beautiful Truth here
To go with all my library related links this week my video is a timelapse of the old Victorian Birmingham Library being replaced in the 60s. Certainly I can say the new library is more attractive than that concrete monstrosity that replaced the Victorian library!
And on the blog this week…
I had a lot of books for It’s Monday! What are you Reading?
I talked about the opening of The Library of Birmingham with lots of my own pictures
I read Monday Run-day to the toddlers
And I reviewed A Cupboard full of Coats
