Week in Review: What I Read

The lack of pictures for the post is due entirely to my weekend “getaway” (more on that in a post later this week). Here’s a look at my reading for this week:

  1. Racist Hunger Games Fans Disappointed:  This article just makes me really sad. Apparently there are many Hunger Games fans who didn’t get the memo that not only is Suzanne Collins not racist, she actually *gasp* put characters who weren’t white in her books! Not only did these people say really terrible things but they somehow think that these things are okay to publish all over twitter.

  2. Poem of the Week:Wynken, Blynken and Nod:   I remember reading this poem when I was little so this was a wonderful rediscovery! It’s funny how a lot of the books and poems I adored so much as a child were written in the late Victorian period or were set then — it dovetails perfectly with my academic coursework at Kenyon/University of Exeter!

  3. Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops: This one is just a funny little book-related piece to laugh over. It never ceases to amaze me how tickled pink I get over bookshop anecdotes!
  4. Woman Files 1M Dollar Lawsuit Against Apple For Broken Nose: In another case of extreme stupidity, a woman walked into a glass wall and is suing Apple. Hasn’t she seen the commercial with the birds flying into windows?
