  • attractiveness for a book: I’m looking for a perfectly bound man with a leather spine.  If you have gold paned edges and words that are in perfect Georgia font, I’d like to take you to dinner in my purse to mingle with my tissues, receipts and empty lipstick containers.  That Southern accented font gets me every time.  If your blurb reads “couldn’t put me down,” call me – 1800bokdate.
  • poems for funny stories in relation to blood borne pathogens: The best thing I could find on google for this was a “Bloodborne Pathogens Rap,” here: (Someone’s science teacher is awesome).
  • books on hovercrafts: With those eyes, aliens probably need large print.
  • short stories about glaciers: I’m not sure about short stories, but check out Glaciers by Alexis Smith, and Shiver by Nikki Gemmell.

    “Seattle Public Library Hides 1000 Books for their Annual Summer Reading Program @ Boing Boing”

    This is why I adore my local public library system. They do awesome stuff like that.

      I hope you find one in the grocery store or something, behind a box of Macaroni and Cheese or in a freezer. (I always put really terrifying books in my freezer).

        Arcadia is way more than weird, hippie, barefoot story. I promise. Check out my review a few posts back. I think you would like it, it’s very much literary fiction.

      • Cassie says:

        PS. Her book of short stories, Delicate Edible Birds, is one of my favorite books of all time. Give that a shot as well.

    Whenever you publish a post, I always have to make sure I set aside enough time to go through it all haha. I love everything you blog, link, and talk about though. I got caught up in the 12 Super Stories Collection and the Hipster Quotes links. :)

    • Cassie says:

      Wow, thank you dear. I love finding short story collection recommendations because you really never know what you’re going to get with them because the blurbs can’t discuss every story and usually they’re all different. Plus, there are so many good ones that I agree with in that list I put up. I hope I can continue to inspire your patience! : )

      • Shay. R. says:

        That is true, short stories definitely fill up a quench that might need fulfilled for a brief time being. I just recently came across ‘The Landlady’ by Roald Dahl… forgot how creepy it was! And yes, please keep doing what you do, I love it!

      • Cassie says:

        AH, I haven’t read that one. But I LOVE Roald Dahl. I was so scared of The Witches as a child, and then they made the movie which was just as creepy. The noses on those witches, man oh man.

    “How a book is born” is just the best diagram ever created. Especially the bit about the intern royally screwing up someone’s project (who *can’t* relate to that?!).

    I read that NYT article about high productivity in ebooks and the thought of publishing twelve ebooks a year kind of makes me want to vomit. I’m really not sure that is humanly possible; James Patterson must have cloned himself.

    • Cassie says:

      Agreed. That or Nora Roberts had one very good affair with a cop. Jodi Picoult is in the running as well. I purposefully turn her books over or hide them in book stores. I can’t handle it now so the ebook publishing boom is terrifying.
