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:
- Book up! How reading crime novels could help ease the symptoms of depression — huh. I buy it.
- ‘Ebooks are stupid’, says head of one of world’s biggest publishers — The head of Hachette Livre got his name in the news by saying something controversial.
- …and Erin Kelly (among many others), demurs: Ebooks are not ‘stupid’ – they’re a revolution
- What To Do When Your Favorite Authors’ Books Aren’t Coming Out Soon: Tweet Them for a Rec — Good idea, though I can see it being a new way to harass a writer.
- DOCTOR WHO New Series Episodes Getting Novelizations — The only way I got to know the third and fourth Doctors were through these books as a kid — and if i could’ve gotten more, I would’ve. I’ll be jumping at a chance to read Paul Cornell’s take on “Twice Upon a Time” — and the others sound good, too.
- 25 Legendary Literary Feuds, Ranked — a.k.a. Hemingway doesn’t play well with others.
- This Week’s New Release that I’m Excited About and/or You’ll Probably See Here Soon:
- The Armored Saint by Myke Cole — Cole makes the jump from UF to Epic Fantasy. This one looks good — hopefully will be able to post about it here next week.
