Starting Five

A sorta weekly feature of things I co-sign:

(1) YA Bashing as an Excuse for Teen Bashing. I really couldn't love s.e. smith's blog more. It's the smartest blog about young adult books out there. And it's not even a YA blog.

(2) Nora Ephron on books that made a difference. I'm currently reading through Ephron's collections of essays now, so this was a nice companion piece.

(3) Natalie Whipple's Inside A Year Post Book Deal. Her advice for what to do is pretty much spot on: work on the next book.

(4) How to Have a Career: Advice to Young Writers. "Calling enemies out in public makes you look weak; in the company of others, act as if no enemy could possibly hurt you." What's not to love?

(5) What is NetGalley? In the aftermath of ARCgate, here's an introduction to e-ARCs and how to get in on the action. I'm excited for eARCgate already!
