In My Pocket is a new weekly feature where J9 and I share some of the links we’ve collected in Pocket. (To find out what Pocket is and how to use it, check out my tutorial on Pocket.) Some links will be book-related while some may be off-topic. Who knows what you’ll find in our Pocket ;) And if you use Pocket, we invite you to share what’s in your Pocket as well.
In J9's Pocket:
- I love the idea of an author chain interview when I read about it on Josh Lanyon blog. It allows readers to meet new authors and see what favorites are up to. (via Josh Lanyon)
- I've always wondered how Google comes up with the search terms when I've only completed a word or two and this article explains that. ( via The New York Times)
- Blog readers know I loved Carrie Ann Ryan's book Dust of My Wings and she just posted a free short story which takes place after the book. (via Carrie Ann Ryan)
- Ava March is one of my favorite MM authors and she blogged about some of her shorter books being on sale this week for $0.99! But hurry, sales ends TODAY. (via Ava March)
- I am a HUGE Quentin Tarantino fan and have been anxiously awaiting his next movie Django Unchained. I'm getting ready for the December 25 release by watching the trailer almost daily for the wacky, visual storytelling that is Quentin Tarantino! (via Unchained Movie)
In Brianna's Pocket:
- What do you think of guys being able to smell a women’s arousal from across the room in romance novels? Here’s a funny article about the subject matter. (via The Bookaholic Cat)
- A few bloggers are hosting a week-long event to look back on 2012 and looking forward to 2013. You can participate along with them; check out the schedule and get your lists ready! (via Fiktshun)
- I (like many of you) have a huge TBR pile but I have yet to find a TBR reading challenge that is SIMPLE and straightforward. Then I saw Jennifer’s post on her own TBR challenge (she’s not hosting; it’s a personal challenge) and I totally love the idea. (via The Book Nympho)
- Under the Dome by Stephen King will be turned into a series. I have had this monstrous book on my shelf since it released in 2009 but haven’t read it yet. That book will probably break my wrist so I need to get it in ebook. (via Oh No They Didn’t)
- I love Carly Rae Jepsen’s song Call Me Maybe and I love the parodies that come up. This is by far the best parody (of a parody) yet. (via Fiction Vixen Book Reviews)
Because I’m nosey as hell and ‘sharing is caring’ and all that, leave us a comment and tell us what’s in your Pocket.
