Link of the Day: Read and Wander

Flavorwire:  The Flâneur in Fiction – Great Books About Wandering the City

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After reading a post by one of my favorite blog authors, TBM, and her lovely stroll around London, I just knew this article had to be my Link of the Day!

I love to travel, and there honestly is nothing better than wandering, sometimes aimlessly, around a new city.  There really is no need to necessarily visit the “tourist destinations” of a new place, because it’s the sights, sounds, and people you discover while exploring that makes you really connect with your surroundings.

So, to coincide with TBM’s post today (and I do suggest you check out her blog), check out the link above to see some interesting books that focus on exploring and wandering.

Happy Friday All!

Flavorwire:  Judging 2012 Book Covers – US vs. UK

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I admit that I find book covers absolutely intriguing; with different designs and different texts, book covers really do tell a lot about the words lingering inside.  And the greatest thing about book covers: that every book has a few different cover versions.

At Flavorwire.com, they put together 36 different 2012 books, and compared the US book cover versions with the UK ones.  So, which do you prefer?  Flavorwire gave their answers, and now it’s time to give yours!

Let us know in the comment section below which covers you prefer!

Happy Thursday All!

Flavorwire:  10 Redesigned Book Covers That Are Actually Better Than the Iconic Versions

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The design of book covers are important.  It is what a reader initially sees, and many readers (myself included) have been known to buy a book based solely off its cover.

These 10 redesigns of some classic literature covers have been described as being even better than the original cover designs.  And there’s no doubting that the redesigned book cover above of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 45  is pretty kick-ass.

So, check out the link above and see some more creative redesigns of famous books, and let us know in the comment section below which is your favorite!  My personal vote goes to Fahrenheit 45!

Link of the Day: Every Writer Needs Inspiration

Flavorwire:  12 Great Videos of Famous Authors Giving Advice to Aspiring Writers

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

When writers are not writing, they’re looking for inspiration.  Inspiration is key to pen that perfect manuscript, and many times a writer’s inspiration comes from other writers.

As an aspiring writer myself, I feel 100 times more motivated when I hear success stories and advice from fellow writers.  I don’t know if it’s the awe or envy of another writer’s success that forces me to writer harder and better, but whatever it is, it works.

So, check out the video above and hear some inspiring advice from author, John Hodgman.  And, after that, check out the link to find more motivation from other famous and successful writers.

Happy Tuesday All & Keep Writing!
