uugghh, Sunday already? when did that happen? It’s snowy and wintery and it looks like a Christmas card outside. I’m still trying to get a snapshot of the squirrel whose always on my balcony and climbs up the screen door. I know he’s floating around somewhere!
it must be dead of winter if I’m that easily amused. Here’s some more intelligent stuff to keep us amused during these dark winter nights.
Are you involved in an upcoming read along? Looking for one to join? Check out the Read Along calendar over at Dark Cargo.
I have discovered Instructables. Holy crap people. it’s like Make meets Pinterest except stuff is easy and it actually works. and their bookshelves tag? oh yeah baby, this is where it’s at. Also? fudge.
when you’ve recovered from bookshelf envy and a sugar coma, here is more goodies for you:
Bookworm Blues has a great review of Rapture of the Nerds by Doctorow and Stross.
SFSignal has a massive list of possible Hugo nominations. Who have your favorites been? Can someone tell me the difference between editor long-form and editor short-form?
wonderfully creeptastic (and educational!) essay on Architeuthis, the giant squid. I kinda want to pet it, don’t you?
the ridiculously quick Lone Ranger spot starring my second husband, Johnny Depp.
Plenty of great book-ish giveaways currently going on -
win a copy of Mind Games by Kiersten White at Unputdownable Books
From SFSignal, win a set of all three Green books by Jay Lake
My Bookish Ways has an indepth interview with Myke Cole, author of the Shadow Ops series, along with a giveaway for the much awaited new novel in the series, Fortress Frontier
is that enough to keep you busy while I’m trying to finish The Aylesford Skull by James Blaylock?
