A Wrinkle in Time in 90 Seconds Now I want to read the book again.
Game of Thrones Trailer omg, omg, omg, omg, omg!
An Incomplete Education That completely kicks ass. Including revisiting the Alot – an animal we all love a lot.
How to Build a Blog I don’t know – there’s some sort of Blog-fest. Or Blogfiesta. Or something like that. And everyone is fixing their blogs and writing tons of content for their blogs and making love to their blogs.
Everyone was doing it, until they weren’t A great article about how all these blog people want quick recognition and then when they realize how much time needs to be put into a blog and how little reward there actually is – they quit. I’ve thought about quitting a few times. What am I doing this for? But then I realize – it keeps me writing. And I’ve made at least two randomand amazinginternet blogger friends because of this. And maybe I’ll randomly make more?
A new Sherlock Holmes?Probably because the movie and the BBC series helped the estate realize how much more money they could be making?
The Amazon Alphabet A strange exercise, but ridiculous how well it displays today’s reading/publishing trends. I’m tempted to do a Google Alphabet. (Ha! A is for Amazon! B is for Best Buy! Geez – if we’re so consumer driven, what’s the deal with this economy?)
Why do YOU blog? Again with the blogging theme, but as always – Marian raises some good points and gets some good feedback in the comments.
Death of another format? Pimp My Novel seems to think that e-books, while they might not necessarily spell the death of all “p-books” (god, how I hate that term!), the new digi-book (makin’ up mah own) will mean death for certain formats. Large Print for one – and I agree with him. But I sort of think it’s okay? I mean – I feel like Large Print books are sort of a waste to make.
Artwork I LOVE Done by a good friend. But seriously – I wish I didn’t do co-editions because I’d sign him up to illustrate a picture book IMMEDIATELY!
