This is an odd mix of odds 'n ends about books and reading that caught my eye this week -- a lot of them from CrimeReads, too. The odd (for me, thing) is I saw multiple references to them, it's not like I just hung out at that site for inspiration last night. You've probably seen some/most/all of them, but just in case:


  • Jake Lacy Joins Hulu Adaptation of ‘High Fidelity’ -- 1. I somehow missed the news that Hulu was doing a High Fidelity; 2. Gender-flipping the main roles? I think my reaction to both is summed up in three little letters (and a bunch of punctuation): WHY?!?!?!?!?!?!???










  • William Shakespeare's Get Thee Back to the Future! by Ian Doescher -- the Shakespearean takes on Star Wars that Doescher has done previously never really spoke to me (but I flipped through a couple and they seemed well done) -- but for some reason this one has me intrigued. Anyone read this or his previous works?


Lastly, I'd like to say hi and extend a warm welcome to Crystal Grasso (Ward) and Jocelyn for following the blog this week.
