Friday Five for the week of October 27, 2014

five Collage

My top five of the tweets right here, right now:

If Authors Ordered Starbucks via @Shortlist – I laughed pretty hard at some of these.

Also from @Shortlist, 35 Author-On-Author Put-Downs – Harsh!

Infographic Tells You How Long It Takes To Read The World’s Best-Loved Books via @StylistUK – According to this chart it should take me 32.63 hours to read War and Peace. My Kobo says I have 17.5 hours to go at the speed I’ve been reading to finish the last half of the book. Should be interesting to see the end result …

 John Green Talks About ‘Why We Need Diverse Books’ via @GalleyCat – Interesting video by the King of YA.

Sherlock Holmes, Unlikely Style Icon via @TheAtlantic – Because I love how literature crosses over into fashion and … Sherlock!

Enjoy more bookish fun and news by following me on Twitter @ebookclassics. Happy Halloween!

    Love the infographic. It took me a lot longer to read The Canterbury Tales than 8 hours, but then again, I was reading the Middle English version, not a modern version.

      Ooh, reading Middle English sounds so hard. Did you make it through unscathed?

        Nope. Scarred me for life. When I could understand the tales, I like them, but no more Middle English for me. Pretty sure I dreamed in Middle English one night after reading. It was terrible.
