Friday Procrastination: Link Love

by Cassie, Publicity

Hey everyone, happy Friday! As you read this, I am being a lazy bum in Philadelphia–there’s nothing better than a weekend trip to visit friends. If you don’t have my good fortune this Friday, then at least these links will help keep you occupied for a little bit. So enjoy the following and have a lovely weekend!

I don’t know if any of y’all love Doctor Who as much as I do, but here’s a fun tribute video to David Tennant. The new Doctor has very big shoes to fill!

I wasn’t in the right part of the world to see the solar eclipse, but luckily there are some great pictures via NASA. The Boston Globe also has some beautiful images.

Speaking of NASA, this week they celebrated the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11 landing on the moon. Here’s a great collection of links, images, and stories about this amazing historical event.

Jon Stewart, of the amazing Daily Show, is apparently America’s most trusted newsman. Makes sense to me.

This has no literary or scientific merit whatsoever. But it kept me amused for a solid five minutes.

The American Conservative has an interesting take on a classic kids book.

A thumb drive with more memory than my old laptop. Costs about the same, too.

A really interesting look at George Orwell’s 1984 versus Aldus Huxley’s Brave New World–in cartoon form.

Romance writers are just as geeky–if not more so!–than the rest of us.

A lot of news in the publishing industry lately has been about the death of the independent bookstore. But! There are still new stores opening, like this one in Brooklyn. All hope is not lost!
