Friday links, 3 March, 2017


Today's first link leads to a definition of a phenomenon that editors, proofreaders and critics will be familiar with, even if they don't have a name for it: Muphry's Law.

Next is some advice for writers: 5 Reasons Why You Should Write a Novella.

See some lovely entrants for the annual Book Illustration Competition.


The book I want to read:


The list:
Today, and occasionally from here onwards, I am posting 2 lists, because the lists are piling up faster than I can post them and are threatening to take over my bookmarks.

The first is 12 Books You've Probably Started But Never Finished. I have only started reading four  books on this list, and guess what: I finished three of them. The fourth I plan to finish soon. I decided to include the list here because 5 more books on it are on my TBR list, and I actually own copies of 4 of them.

One of the stops on my upcoming Grand Tour of Germany will be Berlin. I plan to stay in the Berlin area for 3-4 days and just enjoy what it has to offer, and so I present 10 of the Best Books Set in Berlin. I might even read one or two of them before I set off.
