Ah, Easter weekend! I don’t know about you, but I’m frantically trying to get things done so I can focus on the good stuff–like catching up on my reading. After all, Diary of a Provincial Lady (E.M. Delafield), The Father Brown mystery series (G.K. Chesterton), and The Four Loves (C.S. Lewis) have waited quite long enough. As for you, I hope your holiday is bright and happy; may you even find time to sneak in a good book or two.
Until then, a few bookish bits . . .
First things first: the 2014 Pulitzer Prize winners.
The Guardian Books shares readers’ tales, specifically female characters admired by men.
Of course, British Reading Agency survey finds 63% of men rarely read.
J.R.R. Tolkien’s translation of Beowulf is all about the monsters.
Ginny Weasley (a.k.a. J.K. Rowling) writes Quidditch match reports for Pottermore.
Finally, a look at the wonderfully wacky artwork of Kurt Vonnegut.
