Sunday Surfing 7/7/13

Those of you who follow me on twitter might have noticed I’m been posting a lot of links recently. Sunday Surfing is my new feature (inspired by Chrisbookarama‘s Friday Bookish Buzz, which is one of my favourite features) where I share my favourite links from during the week, about books and blogging.

Plus a little about what’s happened on the blog this week. Lets get started.

Around the web this week

These books are actually real, because who doesn’t want to know how to knit with dog hair?

All these books are going to be made into films. Read them before you see the film.

You can now visit Diagon Alley on google streetview it’s the Diagon Alley of the films, which isn’t quite right in my mind, but still kind of cool.

20 famous authors talk about their influences There are a few that pop up a few times, I wonder if that means everyone reads them or they are a good place to find influence?

It’s probably quite sad how cool I find these picture of  Snape doing everyday things but it is funny.

There are lots of lists of best beach reads around at the moment, but what are the horrible beach reads?

On average Indians spend the most time reading. The UK is 26th (and seeing as most of my readers are from the USA you come 23rd)

Who was your favourite debut author this year? Why not enter them for The Guardian First Book Award?

Seeing as I had a couple of Potter links this week I thought I’d go with a Potter video too

 

And on the blog this week…

I participated in It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

I read A Hug for Humphrey to the toddlers

And I reviewed Her Fearful Symmetry

  1. I’ve seen that infographic about Indians reading the most. Unfortunately, there is a caveat there. Indians read the most textbooks, management books, and self-help books. Sigh!

  2. Still reading though, I suppose
