Saturday Sum Up

Here’s what I found bookish & interesting on my tour around the Internet this week:

Let’s start off with a little John Green.  Here’s his quickfire list of 18 books he loves, but which you probably have never heard of. Love him.

These List Challenges were flying all over the Internet this week and they’re fun to do because instead of just an actual list – you get book covers and a satisfying sound every time you check one you’ve read.

I have embraced all sorts of social media, even giving in to my long-held belief that Facebook is the devil and rejoining, but one thing I don’t have is Tumblr. If I was so inclined, though, this would be a terrific place to start: The 25 Best Tumblr Accounts for Book Nerds.

Tomorrow is the last day for the Twitter Fiction Festival.

Have a great day.

  1. Scored 43 on the list. As for John Green, I saw this clip a few weeks ago and had a 6-book order teed up. Luckily I pared it down to two before clicking PURCHASE. Went with THE ENORMOUS ROOM only because Hemingway also suggested it. That and the boxing book, only because it’s hard to believe there’s a great book about boxing. Time (and I) will tell….

  2. (Last try… either your blog is being ornery about comments, or my computer is being curmudgeonly about sharing them.)

    • Sorry for the delay in responding – and I really should be answering promptly since you are generally my only commenter. Strangely, although you seem to be having trouble at your end…I got all three of your comments. Weird.

      We’re having a CRAZY weather day here – it’s snowing and blowing so hard that I can’t even see out my windows. I don’t know if you got this latest storm, but I am so sick of winter…

      My piss poor response time is down to: yearbook deadline (April 7th…and we’re still a long way from being done); Oliver! hits the stage April 2 and we started feeding the cast on Monday…cast suppers are a big deal; I am laying out the latest edition of The Write Stuff, a literary magazine produced in conjuntion with the other three high schools in SJ. CRAZY.

      That book list was ridiculous – I don’t know who makes them. My friend and colleage scored 87! I don’t how she has read so much. Clearly cheated.
