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:
- ‘The Magicians’ Is The Grown-Up ‘Harry Potter’ You’ve Always Wanted -- Whoo-hoo! Brakebills is coming to TV!
- 3 Reasons Why Booknerds Love the Smell of Books -- yeah, seems right.
- 20 Books That Made You Fall in Love with Reading -- Goodreads compiled a list of first favorite books
- Should You Read Middle Grade Books? A Flowchart -- Karina Glaser put together a handy little flowchart for BookRiot
- Just in time for Mother's Day: 7 Literary Moms Everybody Can Learn From
- This Week's New Releases I'm Excited About and/or You'll Probably See Here Soon:
- The Worst Class Trip Ever by Dave Barry -- an MG book by Barry about a field trip gone bad? Should be a fun way to kill an hour or so.
- Revision by Andrea Phillips -- this looks to be a trippy read.
- Corsair by James L. Cambias -- Computer hackers and space pirates, sounds like a winning combo
- Lois Lane: Fallout by Gwenda Bond -- Lois Lane in high school (and, thankfully, not the version from Smallville).
- Burning Down George Orwell’s House by Andrew Ervin -- the tagline, "A darkly comic debut novel about advertising, truth, single malt, Scottish hospitality—or lack thereof—and George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four" is enough to get me looking for it.
Lastly, I'd like to say hi and welcome to legalreader for following the blog this week -- and the tip -- check out her blog, there's some good stuff there. Thanks also to andrewknighton for the interaction.
