Friday Reads & Links - 1/23/2015

I spent a glorious morning in bed reading "Lost & Found" by Brooke Davis (Thank you Dutton for the ARC!) and listening to "Wildalone" by Krassi Zourkova while I cross-stitched. Looking forward to finishing both this weekend! I'll also be reading "Fourth of July Creek" tomorrow for National Readathon Day.

Some literary links for your weekend reading:

  • A friend pointed me in the direction of this new short story from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (author of "Americanah").
  • Haruki Murakami is writing an advice column.
  • Thank you, Book Riot for sharing these Scottish booksellers' glorious rap video.
  • BBC rounded up the greatest novels of the 21st century, and I am thrilled to see one of my favorites tops the list.
  • I'm not really sure who would want to spend nearly $295k to watch a book blow up, but if that's your thing, James Patterson is providing the opportunity.
  • The New York Times has the list of finalists for the National Book Critics Circle Awards.
