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:
- Physical-book sales are staging a comeback after many years of decline — I’ve posted this kind of thing before, but it’s still good to see
- Literary fiction readers understand others’ emotions better, study finds — the details on this are important, and I’m wondering what genre titles were used. Still, intriguing.
- Why I Review Everything I Read — I’ve been meaning to write this for a while, almost to the letter — which is kind of scary. One author asked me why I do the book blog thing, and I’ve been trying to answer her. Will just forward her this (and the next) link.
- Amateur book reviews – my thoughts — Fictionfile nails it.
- 6 Reasons Why It’s Important To Read Books You Hate — Co-sign, especially #5
- This Week’s New Releases I’m Excited About and/or You’ll Probably See Here Soon:
- The Barista’s Guide To Espionage by Dave Sinclair — Fahrenheit Press has another off-the-beaten-path crime/thriller novel out this week, champing at the bit for this one.
- I mistakenly listed this earlier in the month, whoops! Here’s where it belongs: Repo Madness by W. Bruce Cameron — I did not expect The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man to get a sequel, it didn’t need one. But I’ll gladly read it.
