FALLING INTO PLACE by Amy Zhang ( amyzhangwrites )


They animated the cover. This is awesome.

One version of me wants to try and save the world and is studying a degree to try and do this and another version of me wishes I had studied fashion so I could make beautiful things. Are we ever all our infinite versions or do we sacrifice with compromise?

I love this Tumblr confessions blog that Greenwillow set up for Amy Zhang’s FALLING INTO PLACE. I could spend all day reading the confessions.


Author Amy Zhang is half-way through a unique project to promote the upcoming release of her debut novel, Falling into Place (Greenwillow, September 9, 2014). Zhang has chosen one quote from the first 100 pages of her novel for each day and posted photos on Instagram that illustrate the concepts. With 50 photos up online already and 50 more to go, readers can get a unique preview of this buzzed-about book before it hits shelves in September.

Follow Amy on Instagram (@amyzhangbooks) or Twitter (@amyzwrites) to see each day’s photo.

This is so cool.


A memo from 20 years ago, today.

Key quote: “The internet is a collection of computer networks that is connected around the world…A code of ‘netiquette’ exists among users and within user groups, but otherwise, you pay your money, find your niche and take your chances.”

via Johnny Kauffman at NPR 

A blast from the past, the 1994 memo announcing that NPR was getting internet.

As much as I love THE HUNGER GAMES, this is sort of depressing (via my brother-in-law’s addictive new trivia app, Trending Trivia).
