Book News You Can Use 9/6/13

Football season has started and I'm excited, especially for college football.  LET'S GO GAMECOCKS!!!!

True Crime author Carla Norton released a novel inspired by on one of her previous TC books.

Terry McMillian talks to Huffington Post about "Who Asked You?", which will be out on the 17th.

The people who select books for Oprah's website/magazine did a good job in selecting September's reading list picks.  Why? Because four of them are on my to-be-read list!

Good news for Agatha Christie fans: there will be a Poirot novel, the first one in almost 40 years.  But she's not coming back from the dead to write it.

CBS Films has secured the rights for The Husband's Secret.

Writer Mary Gaitskill doesn't like Gone Girl.

And speaking of Gone Girl, whose idea was it to cast Tyler as Nick's lawyer? SERIOUSLY??!!

USA Today has a preview of the most anticipated books of the fall.  And so does Kirkus Reviews.

Maya Angelou will receive an honorary book award from the National Book Awards.

Bad enough they are making a 50 Shades of Gray movie. I didn't even get to the love scenes because Ana and Christian were so dang annoying. But this was the best they can do with casting? Seriously?

So Rush Limbaugh decided to write a children's book. Good Lord.

One day I will get it together and go to the Decatur Book Festival.  Here's recaps from The Write Life and Our Literacy Lives.
