Link Love

Well, dear readers, 'tis the season. That awful, horrible, wonderful season of final papers. I will likely be MIA for the next few weeks as I bury myself in such obscure topics as the dream psychology of Chaucer's early poetry, and Marlowe's Tamburlaine as a figure of capitalist venturism. Also, something about the Grapes of Wrath, but I haven't actually read that yet. I really need to get on that.

It's going to be terribly dull, but I'm also a little bit excited. Papers are fun. Brutal, but fun.

I'm such a nerd.

Anyway, I thought I'd pop over here for a quick minute and drop some interesting links your way since I don't actually have brain power to write a real post right now.

-I stumbled across this gorgeous set of classics from Barnes and Noble pictured above, and after the discovery I wrote about in my last post, I'm seriously lusting after them.

-Twelve Classic Novels as Summarized by Someone Who Has Not Read Them - short read, I rather enjoyed it. Especially if you actually know anything about the novels.

-I love book clubs. I love them so very much. But this book club has been reading only one book for the past 18 years! I can't decide if this sounds horrible, or completely awesome in a very snooty kind of way. I'm leaning toward the latter. I kind of want to join.

-Another argument for why adults should never stop reading children's books. Such good stuff.

-And maybe it's just me, but I found this article completely fascinating. Usually, I'm a bit annoyed when specific technologies shows up in a book, because then I feel like it's too contemporary and will be dated very quickly. But what are authors supposed to do? Pretend like the technological revolution isn't happening (which some do)? Really interesting topic.

Just three more weeks until the semester ends, and then, if I survive, summer break! I'm oh so ready for summer. Wish me luck!
