Sunday Surfing 15/12/13

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

Every time I’m looking around the internet recently it’s just lists and lists of the best books of the year, I could make whole Sunday Surfing posts just with the lists I see in one week…but I’m not doing that!

Writers against NSA surveillance. Not sure why the governments should pay any more notice to writers than to any other person, but maybe it raises awareness.

This indie bookstore owner talks about how she survives in the digital age. This sounds like a really nice shop, I wish we had more indie bookstores in Birmingham, the only one I know only sells books about trains (yes, I am serious!)

Authors as Dolls I love the Oscar Wilde action figure.

Are these the most important libraries in the world?

Literary Christmas facts. 10 is the best!

National Book Awards winners revealed now vote for the Book of the Year (I think we can do better than 50 Shades of Grey this year)

The letter that changed James Joyce’s life

This video inexplicably had no comments on youtube(!)

And on the blog this week…

I reviewed The Elements of Eloquence

The kid’s read What’s a Crocodile’s Favourite Thing?

And I talked about the film of Catching Fire
