Friday Round-Up

Each week I round-up all the (mostly book-related) articles/blog posts/book reviews/websites/videos that entertained me during the week. Enjoy!


Publishing Perspectives talks about transmedia (no, not media about trans folks, publishing across platforms), as in what is it, who should use it, and when.

The Guardian hosts a series in conjunction with Hive Network that allows the average customer to ask hard-hitting book industry questions of independent booksellers. Fantastic, and so much to read through/listen to.

Flavorwire article of the week: “10 Awesome Books to Give Your Nonreading Friends”

The Casual Optimist publishes his “Favourite Covers of 2010” in preparation for a later post about his favorites for 2011.

Too beautiful to pass up, the 2nd Flavorwire article of the week: “15 Gorgeous Book Cover Redesigns”


Cheating a bit with this, as it’s not even remotely book-related, but it was too funny to not share. Besides, it’s my blog and I’ll post about maps if I want to. 🙂

Children’s Books

Publisher’s Weekly covers the conversation between four picture book authors who discuss writing funny.


I will never, Ever, EVER get tired of looking at lists like this: “The 25 Most Beautiful College Libraries in the World”


Books Set In… is a fantastic website where you can find books, wait for it, set in specific countries! Super helpful for the “Around the World in 12 Books Challenge” I’m participating in in 2012.

  1. I love how you do this each week. I feel like I don't need to read Shelf Awareness any more 'cause all the cool stuff is collected here each Friday. Also, love the map preference= personality.

  2. 🙂 Thanks so much Emily! I'm glad to know at least one person is making use of this largely self-serving round-up.

Book review time! 
The Story of Diva and Flea
By Mo Willems + Tony DiTerlizzi
Loved this as a read-aloud for little ones that can sit still for longer picture books, or, as it's a beginning chapter book, great for ages 6-8 who are learning how to read more confidently by themselves.

#poemaday #nationalpoetrymonth #haiku #kerouac #wildlyread #poem #poetry First day of full-time hours in my new job as a bookseller for an independent bookstore, and it's staff pick time! I fell in love with this book years ago, before the movie was even a dream. Though I'm not a fan of the movie tie-in cover, I'll gladly place this book in readers' hands. . . .
