Links for a Lazy Sunday

Hi blog friends. Here are some fun links I’ve seen on the internet this week.

What does Jane Austen have to do with neuroscience? Find out in this Huffington Post blog post.  Also an Israeli singer-songwriter has put the words of Emily Dickinson to music. Listen and read more here.

Love them or hate them, ebooks are changing publishing. This infographic shows how. If you want to get in on the action, here are the steps to publishing your book through Amazon kindle. I’m still on the fence about self publishing vs. more traditional routes, but this seemed like the clearest explanation of a self publishing process I’ve seen.

I don’t know about you, but I am pretty infatuated with Lena Dunham. Yeah Girls is awkward and uncomfortable – but it is also fresh, funny, and pretty authentic/genuine. Also how is anyone so consistently charming in interviews. I will definitely be reading her book when it comes out.

I finally got on the Perks of Being a Wallflower bandwagon this week (only 10+ years late!). If you are similarly enthralled, I think you’ll enjoy this Vanity Fair interview with author and subsequent screenwriter and director Stephen Chbosky.

Hope everyone has a good week!

  1. Heard the Jane Austen neuroscience connection on NPR – I think I’m going to put down my Kindle Fire and pick-up my old kindle to help me get more connect to the story.
