For us Canadians, this is a long weekend, since Monday is Victoria Day. I hope we get some nice weather, it's raining now. I have lots of plans mostly involving yard work. I have a vegetable garden to start.
Today I'm going to keep The Buzz short. I just realized that I have 3 books to read and review in 2 weeks. All are for book tours. I don't know how I managed to overschedule. I guess I figured I had lots of time to read them. I'm sure they are great books but sometimes having a deadline means that I enjoy them less knowing I have to rush through them to get to the next. Anyone else feel like that?
Anyway what is new?
*Have you seen the ads on ABC for Flash Forward? It's a series based on a Canadian author's sci-fi novel.
*Oprah apologizes to James Frey for the "Million Little Pieces" debacle. Better late than never.
*Uh-oh. This critic, Michael Philips, didn't think much of the film Angels & Demons.
*Serial killers unite in this free story from Jack Kilborn and Blake Crouch. Sounds like scary fun.
*Sarah Palin writes her memoir.
*Stephanie Meyer wins Children's Choice Book award. And Yay! so does the Pigeon!
*Etsy Love: These buttons from Bean Forest's shop are awesome, Protagonist/Antagonist buttons (for your dual personalities) and The Library button.
The following stories were links provided by Twitter friends. Thanks Liz Burns, Joycelyn Peyton, Erin, Tasha Saecker.
*Why Goop might be good for libraries.
*Movie rights for The Forest of Hands and Teeth have been bought. Who doesn't like zombie movies?
*Judy Bloom gets some heat from Pro-Lifers.
*Stephen King gives us a list of 7 summer reads. I'm glad to see Drood on the list since I'm waiting to read that this summer.
Have a great weekend- long or otherwise!
