Book News You Can Use 10/11/13

Team Stacey Forever!!
Congratulations Alice Munro!

I was shocked when I found out that Elizabeth Smart was found alive.  More than ten years after her kidnapping and rescue, Elizabeth tells her story in a new book.

Malala Yousafzi is my new shero.

E-books are changing reading habits. Duh.

The movie based on The Fault In Our Starts will have a summer 2014 release date.

Michael Hastings' novel will see the light of day.

A new Richard Scarry book is coming out. The six-year-old in me is very happy.

Kimberla Lawson Roby was featured in the New York Times!

I remember reading one of my mother's Lois Duncan books as a teenager. Now she's reaching a new generation of teens.

I didn't go see Terry McMillian in Atlanta. But Our Literacy Lives and Bernice McFadden did!

And my friend Valinda got to see Terry at the National Book Festival.

They can only come up with 16 best things about being in a book club?

So Raj from The Big Bang Theory (well, the guy that plays him) is writing a memoir.  Hopefully alcohol won't needed to write the book.

This interview with Jesmyn Ward is EVERYTHING.

The Husband's Secret is going to be a movie and Liane Moriarty has her recommendations for who should be in it.  George is too nice of a guy to play such a jerk like John-Paul.  But Matt's not a bad idea for Connor.

In other movie news, The Silent Wife is also going to be a movie with Nicole Kidman playing the lead character.

Instead of toys, books will be in McDonald's Happy Meals in November.

Here is this awesome post about what your favorite Babysitters Club character says about you.    Despite what it says, I am still Team Stacey and Team Jessie.
