Thanks for the link love. :-) Here's mine:
Heather's heartfelt review of Rob Sheffield's "Love is a Mix Tape" just about broke my heart. http://literaturecrazy.blogspot.com/2009/06/book-review-love-is-mix-tape.html

thanks for the shout out, Susan! my fave bloggers are on hiatus, it seems--but wait: http://diaryofananxiousblackwoman.blogspot.com/2009/06/how-to-tell-people-they-sound-racist.html

This is a great video, and I also posted it on my blog, but ABW should get credit.

I agree with Color Online that the Feminist Review article on the new Audre Lorde collection deserves some love!

Also, over at Poets Who Blog there is an interesting discussion going on punctuation in poetry: http://poetswhoblog.blogspot.com/2009/06/punctuation.html
