Sunday Salon - February 27

Getting geared up this week for Miss H's 16th birthday--I cannot believe my baby could be that old!  We're building a computer for her so she will have her own and I will finally get my computer back.  Does that make it more a gift for her or for me?!

Lots of fun bookish things to share with you this week. First things first: for all of you Austen lovers, Jane from Reading, Writing, Working and Playing has an entry in a competition for Austen related stories.  Jane knows what she's doing when it comes to this kind of story--she's the author of Intimations of Austen: Stories Inspired by the Works of Jane Austen.  Jane's entry delves into the character of Lucy Steele from Sense & Sensibility (#23 in the competition).  Please take a minute and vote for Jane!

From Kitty at Truth, Beauty, Freedom and Books, comes this YouTube video about organizing your bookshelves.

Something in this post for environmentalists, artists and book lovers alike--art using old books.  I never cease to be amazed by the creativity of people.  I'd love to have a couple of these pieces in my home!

How's this for the perfect desk for a book blogger?  We could build them with those ARCs that we can't get rid of any other way.

For those of you who also love movies, here's a post from The Huffington Post about movies from previous years that have been made into movies.  What's you favorite book-to-movie?  Least favorite?
