Odds, Ends, Updates
You may have noticed a shift in the categories and tags on the blog; I'm preparing for another redesign. I know it feels like I just ported everything over from the last redesign, but this one should go more smoothly. I will have to shut the site down for a day or two when it's time to launch, but you'll have warning.
The Book of Odds has launched a new blog series called My Everyday Life; five blog subjects rotate each weekday, and coverage includes "a large spectrum of human experience; from a medical student detailing daily hospital life, to a solider documenting his experience in Afghanistan; a working mom adjusting to an instantly larger family and work/life balance; and two singles navigating the early stages of their adult lives and relationships."
All you Vine readers asking about books, help is on the way — reader Dina tipped me to an app called CoverGuess that lets you tag book covers on all their elements. By doing this, you also build up the Library Thing database so that, when it's time to find a book by searching on its cover, their database has the information necessary to do it. Check it out.
Reader Veronica is raising money for her local no-kill shelter by doing a Half Ironman Distance Triathlon in June. If you can spare a few bucks for the cats and dogs, head over here.
