Is anyone else still suffering from food comas and food babies? I know I am!
Sophiesphere /My posts for the week.
- I thought about why the books I read for high school English classes were all fiction, and the integration of non-fiction into schools.
- I reviewed Blood Red Road by Moira Young and it was pretty awesome. And Lesley and I decided that Saba wears an invisible helmet – how cool is that?
- Wrapping up Nonfiction November with new non-fiction books on my TBR list. My TBR list is still out of control...
Blogosphere /Posts that caught my eye in the book blogging world.
- Ellie @ Book Revels wondered why everyone is reading the same thing.
- The Well Read Fish shared slam poet Mark Grist’s awesome poem, “Girls Who Read”.
- Joséphine @ Dudette Reads commented on the hygiene of library books as a continuation of that cocaine-herpes-library-books news that came out a few weeks ago.
- Joséphine’s thought-provoking review of Cat Patrick’s “The Originals” is also making me indecisive about what to read for the A BOOK WITH CLONES box on my Sci-Fi Bingo board... choices, choices.
- Ana and Thea @ The Book Smugglers talked about Ellen Raskin’s “The Westing Game” (an old favorite of mine) for Old School Wednesday.
- Liza @ Reading with ABC asked if reviewing has made you a better writer.
Papersphere /The catch-all for all other paper or book-related news I found interesting.
- Westley is writing a memoir! Well, fine, Cary Elwes is writing about his role in “The Princess Bride”, but same thing.
- Research by UK group Voxburner showed that teens and young adults prefer physical books as opposed to digital copies.
- Grammarly made a neat infographic about pumpkin pie recipes. Yum!
- Notice how people don’t use periods anymore? Apparently the period is too angry and aggressive. Kind of like girl periods? Ha.
- A linguistic take on the Internet phrase, “I can’t even”, as well as the newly emerging Internet-speak culture.
