Launch Week Revisited

Well, we have one week of Book Riot under our belts, and there was so much good stuff that I’m afraid you might have missed something great. So here’s a run-down of what we wrote this week, from the silly to the serious.


Sometimes, you just need a handbag made out of dictionaries.

I like cheap books almost as much as I like sports novels.

I’m a lit snob, so I’m going to try these YA books. Apparently, there’s a lot you can learn from that stuff.

Snooki wrote an embarrassingly bad novel (and has a deal for her next one), but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy real books and the Jersey Shore at the same time.

A lot of people “like” books on Facebook, but some people like books about plucky lady journos better.

A book can be an ideal travel companion, that is unless you can’t stand it and chuck it.

People can’t seem to leave perfectly good books alone. They are either needlessly modernizing them or making terrible movies out of them.

There are a lot of books about hapless white dudes out there. Which is exactly how I would not describe Toni Morrison.

A lot of people put money on who would win the Nobel Prize. Though the announcement day favorite didn’t win, there’s a good case to be made that Bob Dylan should have.

And if you want to share any of these posts, you can retweet them without fear of reprisal from the language police.


Thanks for giving Book Riot such a warm welcome. We’ve got more where that came from.
