Links for a Lazy Sunday

the_great_gatsbyHappy Sunday! I am trying to remember if Sunday is Funday or if that is Monday? Why can’t you just have fun both days? Let’s do it. I don’t know about you, but I think there is a lot to be happy/excited about this week. Actually, there is one big thing that I’ve been exciting about for a very long time: Gatsby. The Baz Luhrmann interpretation comes out this weekend. Here are a few links to get you as excited as I am: 

If Gatsby isn’t your things, we can still be friends, but probably not best friends. Here are some other things from around the internet to make your Sunday a fun day. 

  • Here’s an article on Jezebel saying that the “manic pixie dream girl” archetype has lost it’s meaning. 
  • As you may know, we participated last weekend in Dewey’s Read-a-thon, if you want to do something similar in a less intense way you might be interested in Bout of Books.
  • My mom sent me a link from HuffPostBooks on tips for authors who blog. On the Homefront also posted about the struggle between self expression and attracting readers.
  • Jackie Lea Sommers wrote about her auto-buy authors on Lights All Around. I love this concept, and wish that I had thought of it first. Mine are Lauren Willig, John Green, and Nicole Krauss.
  • Self published e-books are dominating the best seller list. I think this is almost as exciting at Gatsby coming out this week!
