Friday Reads & Links - 12/19/2014

I finally turned in my last paper of the semester yesterday, so today I am treating myself to a day at home catching up on reading for fun. Bring on the tea & good books! I'm reading Amy Pascale's "Joss Whedon: The Biography" in print & have to finish it today since it's due back to the library in a few days. I also started reading "The Name of the Wind" by Patrick Rothfuss aloud with Kyle in the evenings, and it's been a great way to unwind together. Finally, I'm listening to "Fangirl" by Rainbow Rowell, which has been charming and I expect to finish today or tomorrow.

A short list of links today so I can get back to reading!

  • For each tweet or facebook post with #GiveABook, Penguin Random House will donate a book to children in need. They've now upped their goal to 35,000 books.
  • Macmillion CEO John Sargent posted an open letter to authors and illustrators regarding their ebook pricing deals.
  • Exciting "Americanah" casting news.
  • The Huffington Post made a list of books they're looking forward to in 2015 - get on the hold list at your library now!
  • Texts between Harry Potter characters, in case JK Rowling's new writing on Pottermore isn't enough to sate your eternal Potter appetite.
