~ Jamie Ford’s new book has a title: Songs of Willow Frost. If only we didn’t have to wait until January 2014! In the meantime, if you haven’t read his first novel, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, you definitely should.
~ Sheila has opened sign-ups for the 2013 Where Are You Reading? Challenge. I’ve enjoyed tracking my reading geographically this year, and plan to do it again.
Book to movie/TV/radio news:
~ Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere – which I adored – is being adapted for a radio production by BBC. The cast includes Benedict Cumberbatch and James McAvoy, as well as a ton of other fantastic performers. I sure hope this gets released on CD!
Other bookish links:
~ Xe Sands, audiobook narrator and all-around wonderful person, linked to “From an Atlas of the Difficult World” by Adrienne Rich. Such a powerful poem – don’t miss it!
~ Although I often get tired of seeing adults justify their reading of YA fiction, I very much enjoyed Jacquelyn Mitchard’s list of 7 Reasons Young Adult Books Appeal to Adults.
~ Truth, Beauty, Freedom, and Books: Ode to DNFs – I love this! If you’ve ever DNF’ed a book, you need to read this.
~ Lost in Books: 10 Holiday Gifts for the Book Lover – I want one of those massage-in-bed-while-reading chairs!
I apologize to any of you who made it through this post for the abundance of exclamation points. I was going to go back and change them all, but decided to leave them. Apparently, I’m in a very good mood this morning!
