Happy Friday! It’s been a while, but here we go in 4… 3… 2… no, just number #4.

The links

On responding to negative reviews, this author spent just a bit too much time.

Caffeine evolved to help plants control us.

The way publishers are watching stats and too many requests for books? It’s happening in the fashion world, too.

Have you met the cousin of the bagel? You may soon.

Lastly, here’s Kim’s discussion of blogging for books versus blogging because of books. It’s a good one.

What has piqued your interest on the Internet lately? And should I add more links to these posts in future?

I think you should add as many links as you have enjoyed, it doesn’t need to be any specific amount :)

Lots of interesting topics here! I’m off to read them now.

I love the author saying his description was “straight out of Keats and Fitzgerald”! (In his dreams…where he obviously should have been!)
I love link posts, especially at this time of year when I’m always catching up on what I missed in August and early September.

Great post. How did I miss the article you first linked to?

“…that’s straight out of Fitzgerald and Keats, my friend…”

Oh.em.gee. Amazing.

I’m not normally into fashion/fashion blogging, but that article you shared was fascinating!! This is why it’s good I’ve got folks like you to curate great stuff like this!

Like everyone else, I am delighted that the Guardian quoted the line about “that’s straight out of Fitzgerald and Keats, my friend”. It’s the “my friend” that makes it.

Laughing so hard over the teddy bear detective author using the comments to, in his words, teach a master class on literary critique. Thanks for sharing!
