Friday Reads & Links - 10/31/2014

I'm starting "Tender is the Night" by F. Scott Fitzgerald in print for tomorrow's DC book club meeting, working on "The Best American Nonrequired Reading of 2014" edited by Daniel Handler in ebook, and listening to "The Throne of Fire," the second book in Rick Riordan's Kane Chronicles in audio. What're your weekend reads?

Lighter on the book-ish links this week:

  • LeVar Burton reading "Go the F*** to Sleep" for charity, with a link to Samuel L. Jackson's performance of the same.
  • Mental Floss collects recipes from 16 famous authors, including Edgar Allen Poe's eggnog and Emily Dickinson's gingerbread.
  • At the Huffington Post, this list of seven fairy tales for grown-ups added a few titles to my TBR list.
  • Finally, for Halloween, the blog lists twelve books featuring witches.
