Friday Reads & Links - 11/7/2014

I cleaned out my "Currently Reading" in Goodreads yesterday - finally accepted that I'd have to start "Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell" and "Cuckoo's Calling" over again if I want to finish it. Instead, I am moving through some great library books - "Bad Feminist" by Roxane Gay on audio, "Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography" in print, and still working on "The Best American Nonrequired Reading of 2014." Unfortunately, I have a big paper due Sunday, so I'm not sure how much reading I'll actually be able to do this weekend!

Bookish links to kick off your weekend:
  • The Guardian writes about the lives & livelihoods of booksellers in South Sudan.
  • Good news for fans (unlike me) of Jeff VanderMeer's "Annihilation" - you're getting a movie!
  • If you've been waiting for the legal-go-ahead to sell your Sherlock Holmes fan fiction, SCOTUS has got you covered.
  • The Atlantic covers the recent success of women writing SciFi & gives some background on their historical rise and fall. [via Book Riot]
  • Thanks Matt for sharing this page of first editions with authors' annotations that will be auctioned off on Dec. 2.
