Google Reader Roundup

  • Eric at Pimp my Novel reminds us that we won't be making much money with our writing....and hopes that we never have to eat tarantulas for cash. (For the record, you can be assured that I will never eat a tarantula for any amount of anything. EVER. Can you imagine? Can you imagine those hairy, unnatural, segmented legs going in your mouth and it trying to brace against your lips as you shove it in....and then OH GOD the HUGE abdomen....and OH...the.....juice.....CRIPES ALIVE I HAVE TO GO PUKE RIGHT NOW.)
  • And finally, SlushPile Hell held a Twitter run about bad kiddy book titles. Here are his or her top 25. You should know that none of mine made it onto the list, by some incredible oversight I am sure, but so did none of my evil nemesis' so it's all good.

Thanks for another great roundup! It takes a chunk out of my morning (once I start reading them, it's hard to stop!), but it's worth it. :)

Sierra Godfrey said...

Aw thanks Linda. I love that I control your Friday mornings, heh heh ...er, ah, I mean THANK YOU.

Yeah, busting those myths about agents and fame and fortune is always a good thing.

By the way, I refudiate and exfoliate your snarky comments launchified toward Mrs. Palin.

Sierra, you should also talk about the #bookstorebingo trend on Twitter! They wrote about it on the Huffington Post, it's hilars.

Sierra Godfrey said...

Trav - hee hee. Did you click on her name too?

JEM -- didn't know about it! Running to look now! I love hilars.

Thanks for the link, Sierra! I'm so pathetically behind on posting links and reading blogs!

Awww, BFF, that is so special! ;-)

Julie Dao said...

Your round-ups are the best! Backing up my blog, huh? I never thought about it but may just have to do so...

The only reason my #badkiddybooks didn't make it on the list is because not enough people have read the Marquis de Sade. The lack of culture on Twitter is shocking, sometimes.

And here I thought The Illustrated Marquis de Sade was for the win.... :)
