Saturday Miscellany – 6/25/16

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:

    This Week’s New Releases I’m Excited About and/or You’ll Probably See Here Soon:

  • The Pursuit by Janet Evanovich & Lee Goldberg — The 5th installment in the Fox and O’Hare series. It’s one of the most entertaining series going, and I can’t imagine that this is anything but good.
  • Play Nice by Michael Guillebeau — how do you not want to read something described as “an Elmore Leonard-style Nancy Drew story”?
  • Waypoint Kangaroo by Curtis C. Chen — a thriller with SF elements and a sense of humor. Sounds Perfect.
  • New Pompeii by Daniel Godfrey — killer concept.

Lastly, I’d like to say hi and thanks to bensbitterblog and Karen for the feedback — I really appreciate that.

  1. Actually, if B&N goes down, it is simply reaping what it sowed years ago when it moved in, threw its weight around and put all the little bookshops out of business. I WILL gloat, thank you very much. Ha.

    I also think that the writer of the article has way too much faith in the BPH’s as the gatekeepers of our culture. That is just so much bantha fodder. And I’ll end now before I go all “ranty” over articles like that 🙂 Sorry.

    • No need to apologize! I do think it’s a little doom and gloom-y, but after reading what happened to some mid-list authors after Borders died, I do think there’s something to this (as much as B&N may deserve it)
