Here’s to the weekend

| Friday links

IMG_6591.JPGDespite the chilly mornings, it has been pretty sunny most of this week. Dare I hope that this will continue?  I’m certainly keeping my fingers crossed that we will be enjoying great weather this weekend.  Friends, I hope you have some fun and exciting things planned ahead.

Before closing the week, I wanted to share a few fun links from around the web. See you back on Monday!

So, Scotland has been in the news lately. They went to the polls to determine whether they should be independent from the United Kingdom.  It must be such a huge and momentous occasion for them. I can’t even begin to imagine how I would feel if I were in their shoes.  Whatever the outcome, Scotland will remain a beautiful country. Just take a look at this  slideshow.

Still on Scotland, here are five books that celebrate this country.  Of course there are other books on Scotland, feel free to add to this list!

And while we are on books, if you are looking for something to read, you can’t go wrong with these recent nominees from the Man Booker Prize for Fiction 2014  or the nominees from the National Book Award.

I know they always say that books are better than their movie versions, but I can’t help but look forward to a few movie adaptations that will soon make their big screen debut.  There’s Gone Girl and then there’s Mockingjay Part I (I’m still iffy on the whole splitting the third into two parts, but that’s just me).  I’m very much looking forward to these movies!

And that’s it folks! Enjoy your weekend!
