As always: an interesting mixed bag of links this month.
* Supposed grammar “rules” you can ignore. Yep. I think you can.
* There’s talk about doing Robb’s “In Death” books as movies. Of little interest to me, but of great interest to many, apparently.
* A dress made from romance novels. Probably a bit prickley, don’t you think?
* The shelf life of social media. Not surprising given our attention-deficit culture.
* Books creative people should be reading. Shouldn’t creative people be, well, creating?
* 50 of the coolest authors. Maybe?
* Honest book titles. Slide to see the honesty.
* And 50 of the coolest books. Call me skeptical since I started and quit most of these by page 20.
* Is the ‘serious’ novel dead? I would question whether it ever lived except for a precious few.
* The bad side effects of reading (in the 1800s).
* Good shelving can save a book. Yep. If you’re in a physical bookstore, that is.
* What authors earn. Why am I not surprised?
* Mis-used words — literally (sorry. couldn’t resist).
* This is an interesting observation about RWA (Romance Writers of America) and their workshops.
* Books people can’t finish (according to Goodreads). Been there, done that.
* Tattoos inspired by books. Now those are tats that are cool.
* I always ‘preach’ that a writer must define success for herself/himself. Because really, who better to define it?
