This has been one of those weeks…I seem to have a lot of them, lately. I’ve barely been online — as this short list will demonstrate. Still, some good stuff.
Also, I’ve been trying to adjust to Progressive lenses. Trying being the operative word. I’m spending a lot of time with my new lenses in my pocket, to be honest. Which is not what I spent the money for. My old glasses took up space in my pocket while I read for a lot less money. Any glasses that interfere with my reading are not going to spend a lot of time on my face. Anyone else out there dealt with Progressive lenses? Anyone have better success? Tips to share?
Still, I cobbled together a few 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 Books Are Worth Your Money: By a broke twenty-something-year-old girl living in New York City. — Yup.
- How Kickstarter Is Reshaping The Publishing Industry — there are books sitting on my shelves (and my Kindle) because of Kickstarter. I’m not saying it’s the best/only way, but it works.
- Disability and writing — Friend of the blog, writer par excellence (and his book recommendations are almost as good!), Ian Patrick wrote a great piece on writing life when you have a disability (hopefully the first of many) that contains some smart advice for everyone.
- Why I Love Fantasy – A Rambling Essay of Sorts — a nice post from Way Too Fantasy
- Read ‘Em and Weep! 101 Tattoos Inspired by Famous Books
- This Week’s New Releases I’m Excited About and/or You’ll Probably See Here Soon:
- Velocity Weapon by Megan E. O’Keefe — I didn’t finish O’Keefe’s last SF series (which really bugs me), this one looks as good — maybe better. As Paul’s Picks said..
Lastly, I’d like to say hi and extend a warm welcome to Kyles for following the blog this week.
