what to do over the long weekend…
August 31, 2012
Forget the boat, the garden, the picnic, the barbecue. Don’t open the curtains or answer the phone. Sit down at your desk and click on The Great Taxonomy of Literary Tumblrs: Round Two.
In case you’ve been sleeping, Tumblr allows users to post text, photos, quotes, links, music and videos. It puts a visual face on just about everything and allows users to display their obsessions — er, interests — for all to see.
Over at The Millions, Nick Moran has put together the second list of his favorite literary Tumblr accounts. Organized into categories (humorous, publishers, bookstores, authors, libraries, etc.), this list of links takes you to Tumblr after literary Tumblr. It’s enough to inspire just about anyone and certainly enough to keep you out of the fresh air over the long weekend.
But just in case it’s not, you can always visit Nick Moran’s first Guide to Literary Tumblrs, assembled six months before the second.
Have a great holiday weekend.
