Sunday Surfing is my weekly 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, and from other blogs. Plus a little about what’s happened on the blog this week.
Let’s get started.
Around the web this week
How Book Lovers are Helping (and can help) Victims of Harvey
A book of Fairytales Based on Notes From Mark Twain Are Being Published
Stephen King has a Special ‘guilt table’ for Books He Needs to Comment on this is like the list of reviews to write waiting on my goodreads list…but to the extreme!
Usborne has Apologised for a Puberty Book Which Says Girls Grow Breasts ‘to make the girl look grown-up and attractive’ I just wonder why it’s taken 4 years for anyone to notice?
WW2 Fiction Released This Year we know I love books based during wartime, can anyone recommend any of these?
Terry Pratchett’s Unfinished Novels have Been Steamrolled I agree with Pratchett’s wishes here, it always makes me a bit uncomfortable when novels are finished and released posthumously
Early Mobile Libraries this sounds awesome, almost wish it still existed in the same form
!NEW! On other Blogs this Week
Nut Free Nerd’s review of ‘The Road’ made me want to read a book I’ve known a little about for a long time.
Literary Lindsey’s Review of ‘My Glory Was I Had Such Friends’ made me already start to feel the emotions I thought the book would rise in me (Lindsey seems to be becoming a bit of a fixture in this section!)
Bookishly Boisterous’ Reflections on Being a Nerd which will resonate with many in the bookish community, and which I tried to comment on only for blogger to completely eat my comment 😦
I’ve started following new to me blogs Feminism in Cold Storage and Book Chatter
