|I’m feeling a tad lazy today, so you get thirteen links. Most of these are from my library-related sites I’m subscribed to, but there are a few others added as well.
- Fair Trade Certified; everything and anything Fair Trade related. That is a bit US centric, what with it being Fair Trade USA and everything, but there is also an Irish version, aBritish site, a German one, and probably a few others too.
- Wattpad – a site where you can download books onto your mobile. Haven’t tried it out yet but it could be interesting. There is also Mobipocket but you gotta pay there.
- Japanese Revolutionary Fascist Toyama Koichi – this you have to watch to appreciate. How often do you see someone running for office who proclaims that he wants to “annihilate everything that exists”?
- Library Use Value Calculator ; this does pretty much what it says. You enter in how much you use the library and it figures out how much it would cost you if you had to pay for it yourself.
- Religous Holiday Calendar; wanna know when any religious holiday falls in the next 5 years? Then off you go to this site. I don’t know why, it might prove useful I suppose.
- Science Research for when, you know, you want to research Science. Plus, it is free.
- Breaking Records, Breaking Barriers – US sports history from the Smithsonian.
- IMPAC – the short list has been announced. I have read precisely none. But I do have Sebastian Barry’s A Long Long Way waiting for me, and McCarthy’sNo Country for Old Men is one I will read at some point.
- O’Reilly Radar’s Blogging Code of Conduct – While the larger sites may need some sort of guidelines to explain to commenters, for the most part blogs should be uncensored and everything under the control of whomever it is that runs it.
- Kirigami this just sounds cool. But a lot of work.
- Giles the Donkey. The blog of Giles the Knitted Donkey. What more needs to be said.
- Slate on Ali G An old article at this stage. How Ali G keeps getting famous guests on his show.
- The Borgias: The First Crime Family

The purpose of the meme is to get to know everyone who participates a little bit better every Thursday. Visiting fellow Thirteeners is encouraged! If you participate, leave the link to your Thirteen in others comments. Itâ€™s easy, and fun! Be sure to update your Thirteen with links that are left for you, as well! I will link to everyone who participates and leaves a link to their 13 things. Trackbacks, pings, comment links accepted!
