Another week of small lists. Small, but packed with goodness.
Here are the 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:
- A Library Mystery: Why People Kept Underlining Page 7 in Borrowed Books — gotta grin while reading this…no really, it’s required.
- Author interview with Jo Perry: When the stuff I write feels true, that’s a win — A very nice interview with IRR fave Jo Perry.
- Iron Druid Kevin Hearne Has Finished His Series With Scourged — Shawn Speakman talks to Hearne about the end of IDC and more.
- The Met Museum Rolls Out Over 500 Free Art Books You Can Download & Print — Not really the kind of books we focus on here, but hey. Free. At least worth a look, right?
- Random Musings: Book love and negative reviews — yup. Confuses me that so many people have to say this, but I appreciate every one who does.
- Exclusive Cover Reveal: Amber Royer’s Debut Space Opera Free Chocolate — a spiffy cover, and some good thoughts on humor and SF.
- This Week’s New Releases I’m Excited About and/or You’ll Probably See Here Soon:
- Scourged by Kevin Hearne — This is the big one of the week, er, month for me. I’ve been an unabashed fan of this series since the release of Hounded, and devoured this finale. UF readers will want to look for this one (and many probably are). Will be posting about it soonish.
- School for Psychics by K. C. Archer — this looks like a variation on a common theme — secret school for people with extraordinary abilities (Brakebills, Hogwarts, Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters, etc.) — but with an intriguing take.
