Sunday Surfing is a 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, all about books and blogging. Plus a little about what’s happened on the blog this week.
Lets get started.
Around the web this week
Hidden Summer reads. I’ve heard a bit about The Unchangeable Spots of Leopards, but not come across the others.
The new British £10 note was unveiled. It features Jane Austen. A bit of a safe choice maybe, and the quote, whilst seeming like a good quote, came from a character who doesn’t actually seem to like reading. The Guardian suggested some alternative women. (In fact the Guardian seems rather riled up by the choice, there are quite a few articles about it on their site)
66 Managers left bookseller Waterstone’s (I’m sorry, I am not taking out that apostrophe) as a result of cutbacks.
Children in Syrian Refugee Camps are being given a free book. The book helps them to understand that sometimes you have to leave home.
And finally, just for fun 23 Signs You’re Hermione Granger.
For this week’s video, a bookshop at night.
And on the blog this week…
Later this week loo out for my review of The Painter of Silence
