Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Blogs/Sites You Read That AREN'T about Books

This is a weekly feature from The Broke and the Bookish.

This week it's "Top Ten Blogs/Sites You Read That AREN'T About Books.

Mine are:

1. Tom and Lorenzo: Blog that started about as Project Rungay, but has now morphed into a general fashion blog.

2. Cracked: I remember reading this magazine when I was little, and I don't know how I found the website, but they have a numbered list every day and some of them are VERY interesting.

3. Slate: Liberal news site with interesting articles, but my favorite feature is Dear Prudence, the advice columnist.

4. TV Tropes: Ok, maybe this one is cheating a little bit, but it's not just about books! It's such a good source for analyzing and thinking about all sorts of media and I don't even want to think about how much time I've wasted here.

5. Snopes: I check this website from time to time. I also have to use it quite a bit to refute a lot of things posted by Facebook friends.

6. Skinny Taste: Just discovered this cooking/recipe blog and I have tried making several of her recipes, all with good results.

7. Smitten Kitchen: Another cooking blog that I love.

I can only think of 7 that I really look at on a regular basis.


  1. Oh wow, Cracked.com is awesome! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Ah hah hah hah, another Troper... :) I've considered linking to tropes within my reviews, but somehow that doesn't seem nice to unsuspecting readers who have no idea how quicksand-like that site is!

    1. Yeah, I actually do link to TV Tropes in my reviews, because reading that site has given me new fuel in thinking about books, movies, etc.

  3. I check Snopes sometimes also when I need to prove to someone that an email or something on facebook is fake. I have not heard of any of the others. Thanks for sharing.
