- AN ODE TO LETTERS: Letter writers gather to celebrate fading art
- A Month of Letters starts next week. Their website has been having issues but looks like it has been fixed now. You can also follow their updates on their Facebook page.
- Tonbridge pupil wins height in books for letter writing ~ what a fun thing to win (& his letter is a crack-up)
- Japanese American Seniors Write Letters to the Future ~ sounds like something that might be a good idea for all seniors, but I'd like it better if they were to include stories from their youth: what it was like growing up during the depression and WWII, etc. Even when I was in my 20s, I loved hearing my grandma's stories about growing up back when cars & electricity, gas stoves & refrigerators were new inventions. One of her favorite sayings was "now you're cooking with gas" because she learned to cook on a woodstove.

- 13 Ways You Waste Your Money ~ good points but know which Kindle discounted books to buy is sometimes hard. I don't want to spend even $0.99 on a book if I'm never going to read it but I've "kicked myself" many times for not buying an e-book when it was discounted and then wanted to read when it was too much money so was out of luck (especially when it comes to Christian books since the library here is really lacking in that department).
