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:
- Indie Booksellers Report Solid Summer Sales -- Yay.
- Why Books and Reading Are More Important Than Ever -- am not certain More Important is true, but it's a nice little post.
- Do celebrity book blurbs 'blackmail' readers? -- good grief.
- Cover Reveal: THE HIDDEN FACE -- Friend of the Blog, S. C. Flynn, has a new book coming out and the nifty new cover has been revealed.
- Supanova TV Episode 10 -- a nice chat with Patricia Briggs
- In The Spotlight: Don Winslow’s The Dawn Patrol -- a good look at my favorite Winslow book.
- 10 Books That Were Written on a Bet
- The Hangman's Sonnet by Reed Farrel Coleman -- Coleman continues his excellent run on the Jesse Stone series. Here's what I had to say about it.
Lastly, I'd like to say hi and welcome to The Lyrictrotter for following the blog this week.
