I sometimes come across interesting articles about books or authors and I realized we don't have a thread for that!

Here's one that I found recently about Neil Gaiman and a short story via Twitter.

Wow, okay. What good does it do to attack someone that is dead, and can't defend themselves? I guess for me it seems most authors aren't the only writer of any book. There are too many editors and proof readers and such that suggest changes to make any work solely one persons. So does it really matter?

I really don't care who wrote the books, I am just glad they were written. I loved the first 2 and am patiently awaiting the third.

This isn't an interesting article...


HOWEVER...


Did any of you know that Neil Gaiman is engaged to Amanda Palmer (of the Dresden Dolls)??

I just found that out!


Chrissie | 58 comments hah yes.
I have a mutual friend with Amanda; I've met her before.

Jen (wishesandwanderlust) | 696 comments From the New York Times: The Kids' Books Are All Right
http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/08/boo...

It's an interesting article about how more and more 'adults' are reading young adult books.


Kimberly (KimberlywithaT) | 2137 comments What a great article, thanks for posting the link!

My friend sent me this since she knew I just finished Mockingjay. It is about the popularity of Young Adult Utopian novels.

Just read an article about banning certain types of books in prisons. Come discuss on the B&B blog!

Jen (wishesandwanderlust) | 696 comments Sarah Dessen wrote an article for CosmoGirl magazine about the different boys in her books. I thought it was really interesting to read what she thinks of her 'boys'.
