TGIF / 7

Howdy, friends! So if you hadn't already heard the news, my bookish dreams came true when I met R.L. Stine at the National BookFest! I KNOW! This weekend is going to pale in comparison, I just know it. By the way, last week I tried out a new format for the TGIF posts and I'd love to hear your thoughts. Sound off and let me know if you likey. Otherwise, here's some fun stuff from the interwebs to keep you occupado.

Bookish News
A Princess Bride reunion is in the works. AGGGGGGGH! Somebody pinch me!

An interview with J.K. Rowling about her new book, The Casual Vacancy, and why she almost published it under a pseudonym.

Here's everything you ever wanted to know but didn't about the Babysitter's Club. You can also find out what the girls are up to today.

Entertainment News
Sooo excited for the DVD release of Prometheus on October 11th! I never got a chance to see it in theatres so this will be a real treat. Have any of you watched it yet?

If you've read my review of Guillermo del Toro's, The Strain, then you'll know I wasn't a huge fan. I do think that it has huge potential as a movie and am thrilled to hear that there are plans for a TV series.

Vamps-- it's like Clueless totally had a make-out session with Romeo & Juliet, only kinda worse.

Writing & Publishing
If you're a writer or graphic designer, chances are you have a love affair with fonts. Well, here are 10 typography apps made just for you!

The FAQ's of writing a query letter.

Pop Culture!
Don't ask, just watch.

I grew up a bonafide 80's/90's child so I think it's safe to say Nintendo was the most influencial gaming system of that decade. Folks, I give you a very rousing NES tribute.


  1. TGIF! I watched Princess Bride with my daughter this week, happy to say she's a fan of it too.
    Enjoy your weekend :)

    1. Thanks, Naida! It's one of my faaaaavourite books and films. I can't think of anyone who doesn't enjoy it, actually. :)


You stay classy now! And thanks for stopping by. But mostly stay classy.
