Pen, Ink, Paper & Snail mail blogs ~
- Postage rates will be increasing on January 27, 2013 and per this article, part of the reason is due to our politicians.
- Here's a nice review of Sailor's Ultramarine Jentle Ink. This blogger has fantastic penmanship, which makes the review all the more enjoyable.
- Brian Goulet did a review/comparison of Pilot's Custom Heritage 92, Custom 74, Custom 823 and Prera fountain pens.
- The Well-Appointed Desk shares a clever use for washi tape.
- Redeemed Reader interviewed Sally Lloyd Jones about Kid's Devotionals that many parents may find helpful. Her book The Jesus Storybook Bible looks wonderful. I just wish it had been in-print when my daughter was little.
- They also did a short review of my daughter's favorite book of 2012, Code Name Verity. I first heard about this book on a couple of book blogs I follow (I think I saw it at Kristi Loves Books first & she referenced Things Mean a Lot) so I suggested it to her. She really liked it & now I need to read it so we can discuss it.
- Christian author Joel Beeke posted a good article about the kind of leadership we need in America - honorable leadership. It certainly does seem to be lacking these days.
- Julian Freeman has written several posts about studying the Bible on his blog, Life because of an empty tomb - including Eight Reasons to Study the Bible and Some Guidelines for Reading Prophetic Literature.
