Baby, its cold outside..

| Friday links

IMG_7262.JPGThis week brought us the first snowfall and freezing temperatures! Brrr…

With such weather, all I can think about is cocooning inside and drinking lots of hot cocoa.  But before signing off for the week, I wanted to share a few fun links.  As it turns out, there’s a theme to my roundup this week.

Secret libraries? In Paris? What could be more fun than that?  Here is the list…After hitting one or more of these libraries, you can treat yourself to some hot chocolate chez Angelina.

If secret ones aren’t your thing, how about a library converted from an old train car?  Read all about it here.

Did you grow up reading the Arabian Nights? Well, there’s a retelling of the tales coming out soon.  Here is a short excerpt of the upcoming book, poetically titled The Wrath and the Dawn.

Have you been following the big stand-off between Amazon and Hachette books? Its a feud that’s been brewing awhile with vocal supporters on both sides.  Well, they’ve finally come to a resolution and it can only be for the good of us readers.  Read all about it here.

And finally, who doesn’t love Pride and Prejudice?  This amazing book has survived 200 years and has been re-invented, re-imagined and re-created in so many ways.  Here is a fun compilation of the various covers it has had over the years. Which one is your favorite?

Bon weekend everyone!!
