This Week in Words – Oct. 26

Back from hiatus!

Hi everybody! In honor of the Austin City Limits music festival, which I attended two weekends ago, I’ll start things off with a slideshow of 8 songs inspired by pieces of literature. It’s not the best list, nor the most comprehensive, but it’s the Huffington Post so, you know, what’re you gonna do?

Ian Crouch for The New Yorker talks about neologisms (a word I love), which are new words (many of which I do not love, i.e. twerking…ugh).

I suggest we all move to Iceland. I’m not saying it’ll improve our chances of publication, but they certainly seem to be literary-friendly over there. And it couldn’t hurt, right?

’Tis the season for All Hallow’s Read, my friends. Check out the site, the awesome promotional video, and give a stranger a scary book. Here are some recommendations, too, from them to me to you!

Happy (pre-)Halloween (weekend)!
