A few gems for your reading pleasure…
Plausible but inappropriate book covers, with “witty” blurbs by Jonathan Franzen. Hilarious.
How to Hit Rock Bottom and Come Back a Business Owner (Without Breaking a Nail. Or Resorting to Prostitution. Mostly.) Guest post by Ash Ambirge of TMF, over at Redhead Writing. Ash’s posts always inspire me to get off my butt and do something.
If you like your beach books a little meatier than the average fluff, check out Rebecca’s summer reading list. I can’t wait to read Ann Patchett’s State of Wonder, which is getting awesome reviews (here’s one from the Washington Post).
You Give Love a Bad Name (Sexual Politics in Romance Novels), over at JennIRL. Really smart, insightful post.
Harry Potter update: As I mentioned last week, I’m re-reading the Harry potter series before the final movie installment comes out on July 15. I read the first three books in one week (and remembered why the third is my favorite!). It then took me a full week to get through book four. I’ve just begun 5 (Order of the Phoenix). I think I can make it!
