Okay, let’s try this one more time: Some bookish links I forgot to share. Twice.

So, I fully intended to share these links in my Sunday Salon post. I even mention it in the title. But I guess I was too sleepy last night when writing my post and completely left them out. Since I did post my own book-related links from the past week, the post looks like one big self-centered me-love-fest. Anyway – these are the links I meant to share.

Author news:

~ Poet Billy Collins reads his 9/11 poem “The Names” on PBS. Very moving.

Discussion starters:

~ Ticket to Anywhere: Author Cindy Tefft talks about faith in YA fiction. She makes some excellent points.

Reviews and blog posts that have me adding to my to-read pile:

~ The Twisted Thread by Charlotte Bacon, reviewed by Wendy at Caribousmom

~ Forgotten by Cat Patrick, reviewed by Fleur Fisher

Book to movie news:

~ Keira Knightley to take on the title role in a film adaptation of Anna Karenina.

~ Hugh Grant joins Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, and Susan Sarandon in the film adaptation of David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas.

Other bookish links:

~ Stylist: 50 Beautiful Book Covers

~ Jennifer at Literate Housewife introduces NORC: No Old Reviews Club

~ Beautiful paper sculptures are appearing mysteriously at libraries and other bookish locations around Edinburgh. These are gorgeous!

~ The Guardian: Fool for proofs – the advance reading copy trade

~ Flavorwire: 20 Amazing Reimagined Book Covers

  1. Thanks so much for linking back to my NORC post. I hope we can help each other get and stay up to date. I feel so much more relaxed about my site without the weight of old reviews hanging over my head.

      Jen – I need to really get on top of things – but haven’t figured out where to carve out the time to do it yet!

    That Billy Collins poem gets me every time. I have tears in my eyes having just listened to him read it. I love the link with all of the beautiful book covers. I think they are works of art and such a shame that we only see the spines when they are on our bookshelves at home!

      Kathleen – I know what you mean about the book covers! I wish more cover designers put as much thought to the spines as they do to the covers.
