Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. The blog hop features lists related to all things bookish–characters, authors, titles, and favorites. They’re an excellent way to find new interesting books on a variety of topics, and to connect with bloggers who love the books you do.
This week’s theme is top ten non-book related websites. I could come up with more than ten, I’m sure, because I waste waaay too much time online. But here are some of them, in no particular order.
Gocomics — For many years now, I’ve started my day by reading my daily comic strips. It’s pretty much always the same strips, too, though there is change over time. Some of my main favorites are Dilbert, BC, Get Fuzzy, and Pearls Before Swine.
YouTube. Duh. Of course.
I’m something of a sports fan, primary for hockey and baseball:
South Side Sox — White Sox
Baseball Prospectus — more White Sox
Canucks Misconduct — Vancouver Canucks hockey
CBC News is my favorite news site. Or maybe that should be ‘favourite’. Even though I live in Arizona now, I like to keep up with the old homeland. Even for US new, CBC is often more informative and always more evenhanded than anything I’ve found south of the border.
Politico is a guilty pleasure — not always, but I find it addictive during election time.
KUAT, my local classical music station, which I listen more often on my computer than on radio. My taste in music is totally and utterly uncool. But then, so am I — hopelessly nerdy.
Berkshire Record Outlet is another site specializing primarily in classical music. Closeout discs at fantastic prices.
Netflix, though I don’t know if I should really count it, because I watch primarily on TV rather than computer.
Amazon.com would be a no-brainer, but it’s about books. Actually, I may have to call it quits at this point, because so many of the other sites I waste time on are book related.
What about you? What are some of your favorite websites? Tell us about it in the comments.
