Around the Web: BookExpo, Reading Tips, Little Women, and Literary Relics

8 Jun 2018

Hello everyone! I hope you’ve been having a fantastic week and that I can make it even better with some of this fun stuff from across the internet.

 

An Illustrated Guide to Book Expo

 

As you may be aware, BookExpo and BookCon wrapped up over the weekend. Both events can be quite busy and full of fun, books, and perhaps a bit of stress. So if you couldn’t make it to New York City and want to catch up on what you’ve missed, Bob Eckstein’s illustrated the events and you can check them all out on Writers Digest.

 

 

Tackling Your TBR

 

We’ve all got one, don’t we? The ever-growing to-be-read pile (or shelf, or closet, or room, perhaps). If you’re in danger of being crushed by yours, perhaps some of these reading hacks from Bustle will help you finally start making your way through your pile.

 

Which Little Women Character Are You?

 

Louisa May Allcott’s Little Women continues to be read with pleasure after 150 years of publication. If you’ve read it, you may have found yourself identifying with one or more of the March sisters. Now, with a short quiz from Oxford Dictionaries, you can see which one you’re really like.

 

 

Weird Literary Relics

 

When we talk about weird celebrity belongings bought by their fans, we might not always think of authors. But Electric Literature shared a list of 9 strange literary relics that people have purchased, and some of things on there are indeed quite bizarre. Ever fancy a locket that might have Jane Austen’s hair in it? Well, it’ll cost ya.

 

That’s all I’ve got for now. Enjoy your weekend and see you next week!
