Weekly Links March 3rd.

Hey, welcome to our first ever weekly links - the post all about the interesting posts from other pages that I've come across that have a lot to do with self-publishing, ebooks and publishing in general or just something that I thought was funny and needed to share with you all!

And lastly, Dr Seuss had his birthday yesterday - or today if you live north of nowhere - and Huffington Post did a post on 'Here's What Dr. Seuss Can Teach Every Adult About Life' - worth a read:
