The Astounding Round Up

Friday round up with Laura:

Happy Friday, readers and readerettes. Have you, like T. Rex, invented genres lately? Or have you been too busy fixing grammar in online reviews? Personally, I've been using a new Audible service to record all of my diaries as audiobooks. Self-publishing goes audio, friends. I expect to sell a million downloads, à la Charlaine Harris and ebooks, so I can afford to buy every Star Wars ebook when they come out.

In other news, did you know that Eeyore is the archetypal outsider in literature, and that fantasy maps have some sort of significance? This falls under one of my favorite headings, "Intellectualizing pop culture." Which is exactly what we should all do in our analysis of Levi Johnston's book cover, and the self-identification from reading Harry Potter. I'd rather read about Danielle Steel talking about Danielle Steel, and then pay $25,000 for a signed copy of To Kill a Mockingbird.

That's all I've got for today—until next week!


  1. Gee, and I thought I was the only person who ever had the urge to fix spelling, grammar, and punctuation in other people's reviews and comments..... :)

  2. Greetings!

  3. I love T-Rex. He always makes me feel just a little bit better about myself.
