A Bookstore Love Story: Today in Critical Linking

In November 2012, Victoria Carlin tweeted that she was in love with whoever ran a London bookstore’s Twitter account. 

It’s like a plot-line right out of a Nora Ephron screenplay. Worth a read.


Negotiations are in the early stages, but instead of having “The Divergent Series: Ascendant” open in theaters next year, the studio wants to wrap up the film series on the small screen, according to an individual with knowledge of the situation. That would then segue into a standalone television series set in the same post-apocalyptic world.

I think we just got word that dystopian YA is officially over.


“Twilight” author Stephenie Meyer is back, but Bella and Edward aren’t involved this time.

Instead, Meyer’s new book, “The Chemist,” is an adult thriller about a former agent on the run from her old employers, a nameless clandestine organization.

Her first adult novel, The Host, was met largely with indifference. I wonder how many shots she will have to try to transition into the next stage of her writing career.


Residents of Idaho, Utah, and Maine listen to the most audiobooks. Those who live in New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey are behind the auditory times and listen to the least.

I wonder if these state-wide listening times correlate inversely to commute length?
