Friday Favorites

I want to highlight articles and posts that caught my eye on books, publishing, and technology from the week.

 

The “New Adult” Category: Thoughts + Questions from Sarah at Clear Eyes, Full Shelves

Great topic and a really interesting take on the debate of whether this category is needed or just another way to market Young Adult books to adults.

 

YA Wednesday: 2012 National Book Award Finalist William Alexander And His “Goblin Secrets” from Jeff VanderMeer of Omnivoracious

Discusses Goblin Secrets and William Alexander’s shock at being a National Book Award Finalist.

 

Book Review: The Girl Of Fire And Thorns By Rae Carson from Amy of tripping over books

I love The Girl Of Fire And Thorns so much and this is a really great review of it.

 

ipad mini

Do you think this smaller ipad will see more readers using this as opposed the Nook and Kindle tablets? I think it will be interesting to see what the impact is on eBook readers.

 

Any bookish news that stood out for you this week?
