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:
- Why ‘getting lost in a book’ is so good for you, according to science — Nothing terribly new here, but always good to have this reinforced
- Tie-in takeover: how film novelisations went from dire to great
- Auburn’s Ace Atkins: From football hero to best-selling crime novelist — a longer-than-usual profile of Atkins — from his days at Auburn to today.
- You Had Me Until the Ending…. — a fun discussion from Clues & Reviews
- Book Jackets Are Bad And You Can’t Convince Me Otherwise — this woman is a rank Philistine, but it’s a fun post.
- @erineliza_reads tweets a vital question — I need to come up with a plan, I don’t know about you.
- There’s only one New Release this Week that I’m Excited About and/or You’ll Probably See Here Soon, but it’s probably a good one:
- Video Killed The Radio Star by Duncan MacMaster — I (finally!) read the first in this series, yesterday. It was great! I bet this is, too.
Lastly, I’d like to say hi and extend a warm welcome to A Star on the Forehead, Tiana (The Book Raven), V Ramasamy, dpranita583 (don’t click on that link if you’re hungry, btw), Peg Glover, and SAM for following the blog this week.
