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:
- Indie Booksellers Report Solid Summer Sales — Yay.
- Why Books and Reading Are More Important Than Ever — am not certain More Important is true, but it’s a nice little post.
- Do celebrity book blurbs ‘blackmail’ readers? — good grief.
- Cover Reveal: THE HIDDEN FACE — Friend of the Blog, S. C. Flynn, has a new book coming out and the nifty new cover has been revealed.
- Supanova TV Episode 10 — a nice chat with Patricia Briggs
- In The Spotlight: Don Winslow’s The Dawn Patrol — a good look at my favorite Winslow book.
- 10 Books That Were Written on a Bet
- This Week’s New Release that I’m Excited About and/or You’ll Probably See Here Soon:
- The Hangman’s Sonnet by Reed Farrel Coleman — Coleman continues his excellent run on the Jesse Stone series. Here’s what I had to say about it.
Lastly, I’d like to say hi and welcome to The Lyrictrotter for following the blog this week.
