Did you know...

Lighthouse has posted audio of the first part of the Tobias Wolff talk? Hear him read "Bullet in the Brain" and part of Old School.

about Dearreader.com? She's got a dozen or so different online book clubs (she emails you samples from books), and one of them is a pre-pub book club, so you can read the book before it's released.

that TwoMindsFull is serializing their first book on their blog? Another way to get a story in bite-sized pieces.

the post office has pretty flower stamps? I'm thinking they'll help get through the winter.

there's still plenty to do in the garden in fall? Fernlea Flowers has excellent fall gardening tips.

Tayari's got a great post about the trauma of reading good books? YA authors, especially, will be interested.

"It becomes awkward," one student said, "because you're constantly made to feel spoiled or privileged."

i imagine the purpose of fiction--at least in part--is to show us a bit of who we are.
