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
Is publishing inherently racist? It is interesting that you get black and Asian sections in a bookshop, but no white section. should they all be one?
Indie booksellers will now be able to sell kindles and earn 10% from sales of ebooks hmm, not sure if this will actually help indies or hinder them.
How Where the Wild Things Are relates to real-life. I think we all have a little bit of a Wild Thing in us.
J.K. Rowling no longer a billionaire. But for good reasons, mainly.
Bed sex award nominees announced. Warning NSFW
Should GIFs, liveblogs, and memes be allowed in reviews? I like reviews with GIFs, they’re fun, and sometimes pictures work.
P.D. James’ Tips for writers. Think I’ve already broken a few
Buzzfeed are no longer posting negative book reviews. The Washington Post responded by changing some famous negative reviews.
No video today. I haven’t found one yet and need to write about 1000 more words for NaNoWriMo before bed.
And on the blog this week…
I talked about my first weekend of National Novel Writing Month (my summery of the first week should be up tomorrow) You can still sponsor my efforts. Donations go to Macmillan Cancer Support and The British Heart Foundation.
I’m giving away a copy of The Memory Keepers Daughter as part of The Literary Giveaway Blog Hop.
