carA good Friday to you, fellow bibliophiles. I cannot tell you how glad I am that the weekend is nearly upon us. I’m even managing to get out of dodge for a few days. A short road trip, but a road trip all the same. I’m hoping it will be enough to adjust my poor excuse for an attitude as of late. Pity I can’t read in the car. Oh yes, I’m one of those. Times like this I wish I had a few books on CD. Have any suggestions?

With that, here are a few bookish links that caught my eye this week . . .

This week Thug Notes covers Jane Eyre (thanks to Huffington Post for the introduction).

Brain Pickings gives us a peak at the vintage, out-of-print The Alice in Wonderland Cookbook: A Culinary Diversion. And I will tell you now, it’s all sorts of fabulous. (Speaking of Brain Pickings and Maria Popova, you’re familiar with her Literary Jukebox, right? Because if you’re not, it’s something of a travesty.)

It was cat week at Powell’s. Take a look at these literary felines.

A story written by a seventeen-year-old Stieg Larsson will be published next year in a new anthology of crime fiction titled, A Darker Shade of Sweden.

A Hunger Games-themed camp. Super. (Note: instead of “killing” each other by taking flags, the campers would instead “collect lives.” Oh sure, that’s much better.)

And a little something from my own backyard (so to speak)–Literature in the Mountains: A Bookworms Guide to Sun Valley.
