The Weekly Review: Week Ending 10/10

Here are a few posts I enjoyed around the blogopshere this week. Not much this week, as it seems I had limited blog reading time. Sorry!

Kay's latest comic is perfection yet again. Love it! :) If you're a book blogger, click through you'll enjoy, also Molly confesses her addiction.

It seems this poor book will just never go away.

Scribbit shares a list of best villains ever, Jen Robinson reviewed Love, Aubrey making me want the book , Lesa reviewed The Gift of Murder a collection of crime stories whose proceeds benefit Toys for Tots, and Raych reviewed a book by Barbara Vine (an author I'd never heard of) which sounded pretty fantastic as well.

The President won the Nobel Peace Prize. I was honestly really confused when I heard the news. I absolutely loved this post by Shaun Groves on it in which he discussed it's not an injustice and there's a lot of irony in people warring over who should have won a peace prize, and also echo RC's question...what does it mean to award a peace prize?

When my husband (who gets his news from the broadcasts at the gym when he's working out) came home and said that the president won the Peace Prize, I said, Oh, honey, you must have seen that wrong. Maybe he was commenting on the the winner of the Peace Prize.

But he was right, and I was confused.

And I was said that Updike could not win the Nobel in his final year of eligibility. What a stately, beautiful emissary of books he was.

I don't think too many people are happy about the President winning that. I'm sure he deserves a pat on the back for his good intentions, but still.

I loved Molly's confession. I think she's in good company! And what can you say about Raych. I just sit and read her posts with my mouth hanging open. That girl has so much energy!

I was in Berlin when I heard, and no one would believe me! They all had to see it from a news source themselves.

I was shocked that the president won the peace prize. It took me a day or so to find out. I knew who won for literature and someone from my province won for something else, but I didn't look at the list in detail!

I hope you enjoy Love, Aubrey, Amy. Thanks for linking to the review!
