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:
- Stealing Books in the Age of Self-Publishing — This is disturbing.
- Most YA fiction is grown-up fiction in disguise — Things That Make You Go Hmmmm…
- Daniel O’Malley Talks Stiletto, Writing a Razor-Sharp Sequel — Like I needed a reason to want to read this more . . .
- Author Interview: Matthew Norman — nice interview with Norman.
- 34 Compelling First Lines of Famous Books — nice infographic (hat-tip: Lagniappe Literature)
- Every Modernist Novel Ever — Mallory Ortberg scores again
- This Week’s New Releases I’m Excited About and/or You’ll Probably See Here Soon:
- Infomocracy by Malka Older — post-cyberpunk, political-technological thriller.
- The Bookman by Lavie Tidhar — Angry Robot republished this Victorian adventure that I always meant to get around to. Good reminder.
Lastly, I’d like to thanks to a href=”https://thereadingdesk.wordpress.com/” target=”_blank”>Vijayalakshmi Harish for all the encouragement this week, check out her pretty nifty blog, too.
