What’s Happening on the Center Stage

What’s Happening on Other Stages
  • Truly enjoyed this Barnes & Noble blog post about Four Great Dystopian Novels that Made it to the Big Screen. Blade Runner is my husband’s favorite film so he was excited it made the list. I’ve tried to watch the movie, but I just can’t connect. I wonder if I should try the novel it is based on. Has anyone read Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
  • I was fascinated by How to Read a Book a Week. I’m not quite sure why because that’s essentially what I’ve done the last 2 years. I have to agree with Smith’s assessment about why you would do it–“It feels awesome.”
  • Angela over at Angela’s Anxious Life posted an excellent review of The Princess Bride by William Goldman. As a fan of the book and novel, Angela’s review provides a great assessment of the book and the comments from visitors to the page show there is still a great love for both the film and novel.
  • Charleen over at Cheap Thrills shared an article about how to write proper comments when visiting a blog.
  • As a collector of quotes and lover of books, I loved L.K. Hill’s round up of quotes about reading.
  • As a huge Breakfast at Tiffany’s fan, I’m always excited when someone discovers the novella by Truman Capote. Kimba posted a review of the audiobook by Michael C. Hall that I’m dying to listen to now.
  • And my image of the week, the flowchart of Goodreads Top 5 Most Abandoned Books. It’s a bit too LONG to post here so just click the link. I’m not all surprised at the top 5. Are you?
