Welcome to Huki Links – highlighting some of our favorite literary links and more over the past week from across the ‘net!  For more about Huki-Links, check out our inaugural post.

The best part of the “huki” is that we all pull together, if you find any fun or interesting book related links/articles please feel free to share them via comments or contact us!

Huki-Links has returned after four weeks!  The last Huki-Links was on October 3rd, before we went on our trip.  This Huki-Links is an abbreviated one, due to Halloween being today, but we hope you enjoy it.  Lots of classic HBB with Halloween-ish tones.  Huki-Links will return to form next week, on November 7.
