Starred Saturdays: week of November 29
Happy first bit of December! We're a few days into three advent calendars and this appears to be the first year that Z is really looking forward to Christmas. He talks about it non-stop and keeps asking each day if "today" is Christmas Eve. This is going to be a long month!
Is anyone else looking forward to SyFy's Alice miniseries? Techland and io9 definitely are and from what they are saying, it looks like it could be awesome.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is going to be a miniseries. Oh wait, it's not. But it might become a film ...
Looking for an end-of-the-year book list? Here's my list of lists:
L.A. Times 2009 Favorite Fiction (includes links to non-fiction, sci-fi, mystery, flashback and myths & legends lists)
The TLS Books of the Year 2009 (via The Millions)
A list of books for friends who enjoy form over function (via The Millions)
Some children's book wish lists at Booklights
Lev Grossman's list of The Six Greatest Fantasy Novels of All Time (via io9)
And a dozen or so other lists from The Inkwell Bookstore blog
The Good Books Inc. Etsy shop has been launched! You can support fellow book bloggers Padfoot and Prongs and get some cool bookish gifts at the same time.
The most awesome set of photos ever are from Empire Magazine who brought in actors in street clothes to re-enact their famous movie scenes. The best ones are from Silence of the Lambs, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Shaun of the Dead and Jurassic Park. (via io9)
Here's a very strange but oddly functional bookish gift featured at The Inkwell Bookstore Blog.
And yes, I am a BIG fan of holiday cookies and Joy the Baker has provided me with a possible yearly recipe.
Celebrating a season of lists and cookies,
