Friday Reads & Links - 1/30/2015

I started Peter Carey's "Amnesia" on the metro this morning & am excited to pick it back up tonight. I'm also powering through "Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy" by Karen Abbott before my audio loan is up in three days!

Some bookish links to peruse while you're keeping warm this weekend:
  • With more snow on the way this weekend, the Huffington Post's list of 19 books to read while snowed-in is growing more and more useful.
  • I read Megan Mayhew Bergman's "Almost Famous Women" for the Muckraker & it left me wanting more. Luckily Book Riot has me covered.
  • A friend sent me this article about the Australian's shameful obituary for a very accomplished writer and the wonderfully witty way authors have come to her defense.
  • Publishers Weekly had two helpful lists this week: forthcoming book-to-movie adaptations and spring debut novels to watch. (Disclosure: I just realized I know the author of the latter list.)
  • Slate explains where putting two spaces after a period comes from (and why it's no longer necessary). [via Ask A Manager]
