Links for Hump Day

I was very chatty in yesterday’s post, and I hope I gave you plenty to ponder. So today I’m just doing one of my hit-and-run visits, complete with links to some entertaining and/or informative reading material. Enjoy!

Weird Writing Habits of Famous Authors – Some of the pictures alone make this worth a quick visit. Just remember, whatever you have to do to get those words on the page, there’s someone out there who does something a little more… eccentric.

Apple Accused in Suit of E-Book Price Fixing with Publishers – I wish this were more surprising, but the price wars with Amazon were pretty obvious at the time. It’ll be interesting to see how this shakes out. More on this at PW.

Mark Twain House Employee Embezzled $1 Million – This breaks my heart. I grew up in Connecticut and loved visiting this house as a kid. If you’re ever in the area, I highly recommend the tour.

O Pioneers! – A great story on our love for the Laura Ingalls Wilder Little House books, and other examples of that same brave, adventurous spirit demonstrated by women who helped settle the west.
