Literary Links: February 24th Edition

The next best thing to reading an actual book.

Sylvia Plath died 50 years ago, February 11, 1963. A Belated Obituary.



Virginia Woolf's Orlando: The Original Cross-Dresser. Kind of makes me want to go get a suit.



Women and their Passion for Reading: See, husband!?! I can’t help being addicted. It’s in my genetics!


Can Writers Retire from Writing? Maybe only in theory...it seems that some "retirees" keep all their new stories to themselves. How selfish!

what a fascinating article about women and books. I think that is true, at least for myself. I like her concept that women write for other women. It really got me thinking.

I know! I loved reading it. It seems so simple and in some ways unsurprising, but at the same time, it was good to hear that there is likely a genetic reasoning behind my love of talking about the books I read. Sometimes I feel so crazy when I talk to people about my books, but I just can't help it! I love them! :)

I feel the same way too!! When I'm not reading, I love to talk about books! Bahahaaaaa!!!

If you haven't already, you MUST MUST see the episode of the Twilight Zone called "Time Enough at Last". The main character loves to read and it ends up saving him from nuclear bomb that kills off everyone but him.
