Odds ‘n ends over the week about books and reading that caught my eye. You’ve probably seen some/most/all of them, but just in case:
- Lighting It Up with Fahrenheit Press — I haven’t read as many of Fahrenheit Press’ books as I want to, but I really dig their approach to marketing, publishing, and their zeal for their books. Even more than that, I like the books of theirs that I’ve read. Good piece about them.
- Julian Fellowes’s BELGRAVIA: Why the Serialized Novel is More Relevant Than Ever
- Judy Blume, Bookseller — because she needs another career, I guess. Shame the writing thing didn’t work out for her 😉
- Delilah Dawson shares some important tips: How to have the most impact helping authors
- Johann Hari: ‘The opposite of addiction isn’t sobriety – it’s connection’ — The Guardian talks to an author of a book we talked about last year — that I can’t stop thinking about — about the book, his writing of it, and what’s happened to him since.
- Blowing my Own Trumpet — Friend of IR, S. C. Flynn, announces his upcoming book. You’ll be seeing more about this.
- Top 10 fictional towns in children’s books
- The most famous book set in every state — A different (but with similar results) approach than the one we’re using for the <a href="http://125pages.com/united-state-of-books/ " target="_blank" United States of Books project .
- Ten Celebrity Books We Do NOT Need in Our Lives — the worst is, I could see some of these being printed
- 9 Websites For Readers Who Think About Books All Day, Every Day — I’m sure we would’ve made the list if there’s been 10. . .
- This Week’s New Release that I’m Excited About and/or You’ll Probably See Here Soon, odd that there’s only one, but it’s bound to be a good one:
- Strike by Delilah S. Dawson — Sequel to Hit, which is enough to get me stoked. But when she tweets about it, saying that it includes “A villain based on Boyd Crowder” – I’s amazing that I haven’t read it three times already this week.
Lastly, I’d like to say hi and welcome to Stormy Vixen for following the blog this week.
