I feel like that bunny this week. Many of my meals resemble grass as I make an effort to eat healthier. That is one of the things I'm determined to do in 2012.
I'm back to regularly scheduled programming and by that I mean the return of The Friday Bookish Buzz. What is new in the book world?
*Need a cat fix? How about books reimagined with cats as the protagonists? A Tale of Two Kitties is my favorite.
*Sarah Polley to direct film adaptation of Margaret Atwood's Alias Grace. Hey, I read that one!
*I totally agree with them about 'man cave.' I hate that one so much. A list of overused or just plain annoying words that should be banished.
*This is crappy, crappy news. Brilliance Audio will stop selling books to libraries. I've borrowed a lot of them from the library. Will that compel me to buy them myself? No, it will not.
*Want to buy a book about birds? $7 million dollars might cover the cost of this one.
*The US gets a new Ambassator for Young People's Literature.
*Sad. Oldest independent bookstore in Toronto to close.
*It begins. Hear that? Cha'ching! Hunger Games Nail Polish. How long until we see Katniss's likeness on sandwich bags?
*Why Tolkien didn't get the Nobel Prize. By the way, the winner that year was Ivo Andric.
*The Story of the Bookhouse: A Romance.
*Etsy Love: Wrap your head around this, cats as Jane Austen characters. Now see Tara Fly's interpretation of Mr Bennet.
