I'm guessing the 4th is responsible for the fact that I only gathered 2 links for the Odds 'n ends bit this week about books and reading. Still, I liked 'em, maybe you will, too:
- Larry Correia had a great post about writers' extra-curricular activities -- in short, Larry Correia, George R. R. Martin, and their colleagues, are not your bitches.
- 17 Things That Will Take Reading To The Next Level -- I could use some of these, for sure
- Sacrifices by Jamie Schultz -- I've been waiting for this one since about 10 minutes after I finished last year's Splintered.
- The Last Adventure of Constance Verity by A. Lee Martinez -- Martinez is a long-time fave around these parts, and for him to kick off an actual series is cause for joy. (cool looking book, too)
- Heroine Complex by Sarah Kuhn -- if you haven't heard the buzz about this one, I'm astounded. Good job, you. But man, the concept and the buzz make me want to read it.
