Friday Fancies

Obviously the biggest book news of the week--or of the year, really--was the announcement that a new novel by Harper Lee will be published this summer. I can't remember the last time I felt such a jolt of excitement from reading a piece of news. In the subsequent days, many questions have been raised about whether or not Lee really wants this novel published. Personally, until there is more than just speculation that she's being taken advantage of by her lawyer or her publisher, I plan on focusing on the excitement of reading Go Set a Watchman. This piece in the Guardian argues in favor of taking that point of view.

While we're all waiting for the book's summer release, here are some nonfiction essays by Harper Lee to check out.

A Nancy Drew cookbook--who knew?

And 40 ideas to cultivate a richer reading life--I definitely want to try some of these.
