20 Online Sites to Increase Your Reading Pleasure Despite Today’s Pressures and Lack of Time

This week I am posting links to 20 sites that I’ve been “reading around” online. It’s summer and supposed to be those slow, lazy days, but there is so much going on for so many of us, that we may long for some online literature to come to our rescue when we aren’t quite settled in for a long read or want to know what we might read if we can find that settled time, whether that is memoir, short fiction, poetry, or articles about submitting our work for publication or about paths to publishing books in today’s world.

So check out these links on your computers, your phones or your tablets. These rich sites with many short reads will have you enjoying more summer reading than you may have thought possible in these busy and often distracting time. And many have lists that you will explore when you have more leisure (those times do come, don’t they?).
