      Yes, these link roundups began as a way to combine posts and therefore save time and ended with these ridiculously huge posts. The Lesbrary: scouring the internet for les/etc lit so you don’t have to.

      Oooh, I definitely want to read that book now. Thanks for the link! I’ll inquire about an interview once my life slows down a little.
