Week In Review

I may do this weekly, I may not. Pretty much I'm just linkspamming random nifty bookish things.  Feel free to share your favorite things from this week with me in the comments or on your own blog.

(Two via Go Fug Yourself)

Insulted by Authors (some NSFW)

Beauty and the Beast

360-Degree Panorama Takes You Inside Prague’s Off-Limits Baroque Library
One of the best things about college: you meet other girls who saw Beauty and the Beast and decided they were interested in the type of guy who would give them a library.

(via too many people to count)

BigAl's Books and Pals: Review of the GREEK SEAMAN by Jacqueline Howett

I want to thank every author I've ever reviewed for not reacting like this.

(via my own blogroll/browsing)

1bruce1 proves Francine Pascal is real. Ya'll don't know how badly I want to read SWEET VALLEY CONFIDENTIAL. I had to resist buying it in Target the other day.

Jennifer Egan Tells Young Writers to Ignore "Best Of" Lists

Signed onto Jezebel for the first time in forever. The new design still sucks.

Maggie Stiefvater's April Fools Prank: LITTER

A. S. King's V-Day Post

The Demon's Surrender (Demon's Lexicon)

Sarah Rees Brennan announces a new trilogy. THE DEMON'S SURRENDER, the final novel in her current trilogy, will be released June 14. I had a ridiculously fun time seeing her live last year and can't wait to read the new book.

Tributes to Diana Wynne Jones:

Neil Gaiman

Emma Bull

Farah Mendlesohn

Quoth Mendlesohn:
It would be conventional to say here, “and had children of their own” but while that’s true too, what is fascinatingly true, is that many of them had books of their own. Diana had not just grown fans, she had grown writers. Science fiction and fantasy authors, writers for both adults and children, began to cite her influence, writers as diverse as Neil Gaiman, Kate Elliott, Marie Brennan, Chaz Brenchley, John Scalzi, Shweta Narayan, Rhiannon Lassiter, Charlie Butler, Sarah Monette, Sharianne Lewitt, Caroline Stevermer, Sonya Taafe, Nisi Shawl, Gillian Polack and Greer Gilman. Some had read her as children, some met her work later in life.
