Top Ten Tuesday | Favorite Non-Bookish Websites

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted weekly by the lovely ladies at The Broke and The Bookish.

This week is a different sort of topic: the top ten websites you visit that AREN'T about books. I'm going to skip over things like Gmail and Facebook and news sites because they're not that interesting, but here are some of my favorite non-bookish sites:

1. Cracked.com: the most hilarious lists you will ever find anywhere. They even have real facts! Sometimes.

2. xkcd: a funny, non-serial web comic. Sometimes the programming jokes go over my head. But there is lots of hilarious awesomeness.

3. Hyperbole and a Half: the most hilarious blog ever. Funny stories with (intentionally) bad pictures! Read the one about the party. You'll like it. (But don't read it in a public place because everyone will wonder why you're choking to death as you try not to laugh out loud. Trust me.)

4. 9gag: memes. Lots of memes. And pictures. Usually funny.

5. Foodgawker: you want me to explain why I like pictures of food? Please go away and come back when you're no longer a zombie.

6. Pinterest: pictures! I like Pinterest, only it would be better if the weird advertisement pins would go away.

7. Dr. McNinja: a serial web comic with an Irish doctor ninja. Who sometimes rides a dinosaur. Or a rainbow motorcycle. Seriously, doesn't that make you want to read it?

8. Looking for Group: another serial web comic, this time parodying classic fantasy. Apparently also makes fun of World of Warcraft, but I've never played so that's not as funny.

9. Pandora: for when you're too lazy for Spotify. I have about 12 different stations.

10. How Stuff Works: because I'm a nerd and like knowing things. It has a really good explanation of special relativity. If anyone was curious.

So apparently I really like funny things and pictures. Plus music and occasionally learning things. What are your favorite sites?


  1. Love Pinterest and Food Gawker too. I also like Photograzing for yummy pictures of foods that I'll probably never be able to make.


  2. Oh, your top 4 is definitely in our readers as well! we could actually have two more lists just with humor sites and comics :D lovely list.

  3. Yay for Pinterest and Cracked! I need to check out Food Gawker ASAP!

  4. I can waste serious amounts of time on Pinterest.

  5. Except for #7 & #8, I totally love all those sites, too!

  6. Pinterest is so good :)
    And foodgawker! O.M.G!!


I love your comments! I try to respond to them...eventually!

This is now an award-free blog. I love and totally appreciate that you thought of me, but I know myself better than to think I would be organized enough to pass them along, and that doesn't seem fair.

Finally, if you're posting a URL, the code to make it actually link to your site is <.a href="your URL">your text<./a>, without the periods.
