Odds & Ends

Hello, just thought I'd take a quick moment to point out some interesting posts I've read:


1. LK got a mention on Austenblog.com! (See Weekend Bookblogging, Oct. 14, 2007.) This is a really great website for all things JANE.

2. Danielle has posted some wonderful observations about The Horla, one of my horror short picks and this month's selection over at A Curious Singularity.

3. I didn't like I Am Legend, but here's an objective, interesting take on the novel from Biblioaddict. (Plus an interview with Matheson!) I guess this novel got under my skin, despite the fact that I personally had issues with it. Can't give up on Matheson yet.

4. Punctuality Rules! Great site, courtesy of Pages Turned.

5. In preparation for my upcoming trip to Spain (less than 3 weeks!!!), I'm reading Barcelona by Robert Hughes. I am planning to write a travel article on my visit, but it seems Hughes has covered just about everything! A little hard going, but great resource for anyone who may be traveling to Barcelona.

Weird - my first comment didn't appear on the site so my comment about gaudi sounds odd. Basically I said that you would love Barcelona and to be sure to visit the Gothic Quarter. Have fun famous LK!

Stefanie, I am hoping to do at least one blog post during my trip. Definitely taking pix. I don't know what I'm bringing to read yet --- will let you know as the time draws nigh.

OBG, I'm going to Gaudi all over the place! Let me know if you have any specific sites or places you'd recommend...

Oh your so lucky to be going to Spain. I am very envious!! Take lots of notes so those of us without lives (okay that would be me) can live vicariously through you!

LK said...

Thanks, Snacky, for the link!

Danielle, will take notes, will take pictures, will hopefully write a literary travel piece...

Andi said...

Yay! More links for me to visit today in a grand effort to NOT GRADE PAPERS. :)

I also want to know what you'll be taking to read while in Spain...where are you headed? Barcelona? Madrid?

LK said...

Here's the itinerary: Fes, Casablanca, Madrid, Barcelona, and day trips from Barcelona, possibly Montserrat.

Bueno, no?

Gaudi recommendations - hit as many places as you can but especially the Sand Castle.
