“I’m looking for a book by a British author I read about in the paper. I don’t remember the authors name or the name of the book, can you look it up for me?”

Decided I couldn’t wait for the library hold any longer, and I was close to my favorite independent bookstore in Milwaukee today, so I bought The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue and plan to start reading it this evening, as soon as I take a shower.

Spent a lovely couple of hours in the park today, doing a bit of light reading in the form of Tim Marshall’s “The Power of Geography” before returning home to watch the footie. There’s nothing like reading a good book in the summer sunshine 😎☀️

How to write a children's picture book
Tumblr media
Picture books can appear deceivingly simple to create. But in reality, are some of the trickiest books to write. With the word count being so low, every passage and illustration needs to be absolutely perfect so a child will want to read it over, and over again.
Kickstart your children's picture book writing with advice and insight from our teams at Ladybird and Puffin.

The 10 Best Literary Film Adaptations of the Decade
Tumblr media
As you may have noticed, over the past few weeks, we’re been looking back at the best books from the decade, from novels to poetry to nonfiction. As a sort of coda to that project, I’ve also polled the staff about their favorite literary adaptations of the decade, on both the big and small screens. Earlier this week, we published our list of the best television adaptations of the decade, and now, as promised, I present our list of the decade’s best films adapted from books.
Take note that we attempted to judge the films in question on their own independent merits; while many of us have read the books these shows are based on, we didn’t base our decisions on fidelity to, or creativity of departure from, the original text. We just wanted to pick the best movies.
As with the previous lists, the top ten big screen adaptations were chosen after a lengthy debate among the Literary Hub staff. It got testy, but in the end, we agreed—though many of us had to include our dissenting opinions at the end of the list. If we’ve missed your favorite, tell us why we’re wrong in the comments.

almost all my coworkers are either on vacation, in hospital or have resigned and we desperately needed people for today. enter two insane bookseller guys pulling a 9 am - 9 pm shift. the four of us shelved about 1500 books in a single day and assembled another 500 for a recall. booksellers are like surprisingly buff human supercomputers, i love us.

Recommend me the funniest books you've ever read
From time to time I remember when @taylorgoldsmiths told me about Douglas Lindsay's Barney Thomson books and how I laughed through the first two of them non-stop. Lindsay was a totally unknown author for me before that. Send me single recs, send me lists, send me heaps of fun, good satire, the absurd, books that made you cry laughing, dark humour, gallows humour, insane humour. Fiction or non-fiction, I don't care. Theory on jokes and comedy? That would be also marvelous! Drama? Sure! Do you know any totally insane crac fics? Send them over.

Today's my first day working back at the bookstore, so I made myself a jewelry set of books to wear out of polymer clay and acrylic paint.
