Friday News & Give-Away: Fall, Ira, Claudia Kishi & More

by Erynn

I know that Fall doesn’t officially begin until September 22nd, but this past week has really felt like the beginning of Fall for me. Our European vacation came to an end, Summer Fridays at work are over.  Russell (my husband) is a high school English teacher, and this week was his first week back at school too.

I’m not too bummed though because

  1.  I’m over the humidity of summer
  2.  I make my year’s resolutions in the Fall so I’m feeling refreshed and motivated right now
  3.  I love pumpkin flavored anything
  4.  There are so many good literary books coming out that I’m really excited about (1, 2, 3, 4)

Hope you’re all looking forward to Fall too (and this weekend)!

Here are some fun book links from around the Web (click on photos for sources):

Books + Ira Glass. The host of “This American Life” (my favorite) talks about books in this NY Times article.

This video is hilarious and offensive (in a funny way).

If you were an extreme Babysitter’s Club fanatic like me, you’ll get a kick out of this amazing Claudia Kishi comic.

What’s your favorite niche bookstore? I have a pretty cool one in my neighborhood. Flavorwire compiled this neat list of the coolest niche bookstores around the world. 

This week’s give-away is a copy of LIVING IN A NUTSHELL. To enter to win a copy, please leave a comment below. Winner will be chosen at random, next Wednesday, 9/12. Cheers!

  1. I loved your last post on Living in a Nutshell, and I love what you’ve done to your small NY apartment! Of course most people can do a lot with big spacious spaces, but I’m always so impressed with people who can transform small spaces. I’ve been seeing a lot of books that help you garden in small urban spaces too. Love the idea!
