Sunday Surfing 11/5/14

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

Book recommending sites. Do you use any of these? What do you think?

Alan Bennett has said he doesn’t read British authors. Sounds pretty bad, except that isn’t it good to read of things you don’t know. It sounds a bit like he means that.

How to Tell If You’re Reading a Gothic Novel

John Green’s cameo got cut from The Fault in Our Stars, but here are some other author cameos

A Recently Discovered Breed of Wasp has Been Named After Dementors

A New Bookish Social Network and Online Store is Promoting Independent Bookstores

Great ‘Literary’ Moments. The last one is the best.

Topless Bookclub Makes Reading Sexy. Because, you know, that’s what you want from reading, sexiness (Link contains NSFW images)

Can Literary Works Be Devalued By Bookish Items?


And on the blog this week…

I reviewed Eleanor & Park

The kids read Itzy Bitzy House

I reviewed Let’s Pretend This Never Happened

No Sunday Surfing next week, I’m off to Paris 🙂
