(Finally) Almost done with Le Petit Prince…
Any ideas what should be next?
Something tells me Balzac is too big a jump :P
I am so very excited to read Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald, by fellow St. Martin’s author Therese Anne Fowler.
And I do think this gorgeous cover is a contender for the year’s best!
Cover of the year?
gorgeous cover indeed
common literary themes — or, eternal human struggles

But where to find a publisher? First of all, get your work out there — which is easy to do on Tumblr because it’s designed to encourage content discovery. “[Tumblr’s] both a blogging platform and a social network, so if you write a post that other people like, all they have to do to share with their readers is hit the reblog button — as opposed to copying the URL and pasting it to Twitter or Facebook or email,” Hagan said. And with a community of more than 80 million blogs, there is already an audience eager to taste new projects everyday.
Woohoo - meta contribution of the day!
Reblogging my article about Tumblr.
Reading & Riding New York’s Underground
Every day, approximately seven million people journey through the underworld of New York City’s subway system. Along their daily commutes, some passengers stare into space, rock out on headphones, or sleep. But a special group of riders simultaneously embark on a different kind of journey — through the books they read. Ourit Ben-Haim, New Yorker and self-proclaimed street photographer, has been documenting these “Reading-Riders” since December 2011 on The Underground New York Public Library.
What inspired you to begin the UNYPL?
The first time I photographed a subway reader, I did it just out of photographic instincts. After that I felt compelled to do it again, and the photographs I collected inspired me to build a visual library. Concentrating on the Reading-Riders led me to discover layers of meaning in their presence and activity. In time I resolved to create an extensive series, in revelation, preservation, and celebration of them.
Love this tumblr!
