Charlotte and I spend a lot of time reading about reading (and publishing, and book selling, and pretty much anything to do with books and bookishness). We also spend a lot of time on Twitter, and some of the things we come across there run the gamut from brilliant to hilarious, and often both at the same time. Point being, we realized we simply MUST start sharing some of our online finds with you guys on a regular basis.
Hence – we’ve decided to officially make Fridays around here, “Follow the Reader Fridays: Featuring Hot Links and ‘Overheard on Twitter.'” That’s right – we’re curating some bookish link love and a whole lot of twitter just for you, dear readers! It’s going to be fun. Feel free to send us any cool links you’d like us to share, and retweet us with any fabulous tweets you’d like to see in this space. (This week is a little Thursday and Friday-heavy, since we just decided to do this on Thursday.)
So, with no further ado, here’s the first installment of “Follow the Reader Fridays!”
Follow the Reader Fridays: Hot Links
Halloweenie Bonus: Two Terrifyingly Booo-kish Hot Links:
Overheard on Twitter this Week:
@kirkbiglione: I’m full of questions today. For example, when I stop reading my Vook, do I need a Vookmark?
@glecharles: #pbv Friedman on enhanced ebooks: “I’m not interested in disrupting the reading experience; it’s sacrosanct.”
@colleenlindsay: You’ll frequently get rejections or requests for partials from me at 3:00 AM. Queries are a great way to deal with insomnia. #AllAboutAgents
@rachellegardner: Contrary to popular myth… most agents actually love writers, books and publishing. #AllAboutAgents
@jtribble: Poisoned Pen now using NetGalley: RT @NetGalley: As of today, publishers can choose 2 offer protected (DRM) OR open (DRM-free) galleys
@bookavore: Someone thought we were a bar. To be fair, the window full of books definitely makes it seem like a good place to get sloshed.
@bookavore: We’re considering a new section: The Island of Misfit Books. Yea or nay?
@susanmpls: Books R like bras. some lift you up. some offer support. some make you feel good. some R pretty. some R recced by ur doctor.
