Still having some writer’s block, so here are a few more interesting links I came across over the last couple days.
Nintendo and HarperCollins announced a deal where they will make 100 classic book titles available to read on the Nintendo DS game console. Sadly, these DS books will initially only be available in the UK, but that’s still pretty cool. Read the article in the Telegraph, a post at Jacket Copy, and a post at Green Pixels for more info.
A new blog, Daily Routines, posts about the writing habits and routines of famous writers. The information is “culled from books, newspaper, magazines, and websites,” the site says.

Carolyn Kellogg, their lead blogger, always has the most interesting links and commentary about book-related news.
