Friday Reads & Links - 11/28/2014

I should be reading my casebooks exclusively, with finals on Dec. 8 and 10. But I also have book clubs Dec. 7 and 14! I'm reading "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay" by Michael Chabon in print for DC book club and just started "Belzhar" by Meg Woltizer in audio.

Some links to kick off your weekend:
  • The Ferguson library stayed open to support the community this week when many other community resources shut down. Book Riot collects ways to support them.
  • The Guardian profiles National Book Award winner Jacqueline Woodson, whose victory was unfortunately "marred by a racist gaffe."
  • For something a little different, Vulture profiles an NYC institution" the Strand Book Store.
  • William Shatner is kickstarting a book [via The Guardian].
  • A copy of Shakespeare's first folio in excellent condition was found in a small French library.
  • A good friend said this is what she imagines my home will eventually look like. A girl can dream!
  • published two lists that added titles to my TBR: great standalone fantasy novels and exceptional books of 2014.
  • Finally, Audible is having a big sale - over 300 titles are priced at $4.95, some lower if you have the Kindle version through Whispersync. Best of all, it's NOT members-exclusive. I picked up "Bitter Seeds" by Ian Tregillis and Daniel Abraham's "The Dragon's Path."
