What book blog posts are you buzzing about this week? We're excited about...
The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face*
Posted by Erin Hosier on Betsy Lerner's blog
Are you all sick of hearing about Jonathan Franzen yet? Before you roll your eyes, here's a funny post from guest blogger Erin Hosier (on author/editor/agent Betsy Lerner's blog) about why the Great American Novelist's author photo just doesn't do anything for her. I'd highly recommend you read the post, although if you think you'll be offended by insults to Franzen's masculinity (or perhaps an image of him on the toilet). . . well, don't say we didn't warn you!
Interview with Jennifer Egan
Posted on The Morning News
BookPage gave a rave review to Jennifer Egan's latest novel, A Visit From the Goon Squad, so I was interested to read this conversation with the author in The Morning News. Egan, who is also a journalist, discusses being a both sides of interviewing, why she included PowerPoint slides in her novel and more. Definitely worth a read.
On the Shelf
Posted by Bookish NYC
As someone who is somewhat obsessed with interiors and decorating, I was excited to find a book blog that devotes a portion of its coverage to spaces for reading. This picture of "le petit salon" will make you want to swoon right onto that chaise lounge. Scroll down on the blog for other "On the Shelf" posts.
