Promenade Around the Internets – June 2, 2013

Hello Readers!

There’s not a whole lot to report this week. Before I get started, I found my new favorite thing ever and had to share with you! You can thank me later:

Moving on to other bookish things:

Ever wonder about the most challenging books you’ll ever read? Well, BuzzFeed put together a list. Now the question is, are any of these worth the time and energy? 25 Most Challenging books. I’ve read a couple of these. Am I a better person for it?…I’ll be thinking about this all week.

While the Great Gatsby remains in theaters (you should really see it if you haven’t already), there’s been some cool articles about F Scott Fitzgerald to be found. Here’s 24 things you didn’t know about The Great Gatsby.

I love books and I love Cocktails and I love travel. Put those all together and you have my happy place.  Here are 4 literary pub crawls that have make it onto my “To do before I die” list.

I have always had a weakness for Bridget Jones’ Diary. So, imagine my excitement upon news of the release of a soon to be released 3rd book! Read a sample of the new installment!

Moving over to more hobbity news:

Imagine if the genders of all of the Lord of the Ring characters were swapped. I would totally watch that movie! Most of these picks are genius. Though, Kate Winslet as Merry. Really?

Finally: there is a whole lot of fan art dedicated to the Lord of the Ring books. However, Kinko-White’s art breaths new life into the beloved characters. Check it out. You won’t be disappointed!

I hope y’all are out enjoying this sun today! Or at least the remainder of your weekend.

  1. OMG Jane Austen’s Fight Club was hilarious!! I’m just going to watch that a few dozen times or so now!

    I’ve only read a couple of those books on the Most Challenging List as well, and my experience with those has not made me eager to try the others.
