This Girl Likes #10

Hello, and TGIF!  I am looking forward to the weekend, especially since I've had a crazy busy week.  I'm here today to talk about some things I've been enjoying lately from around the web.

  • Yeah, basically English is the best.  
  • I love this post on the Barnes & Noble blog about what to do when your non-reader friend keeps interrupting you while you're reading.  And while I don't struggle with this a whole lot, I sometimes want to ask my family members sometimes if they are trying to stop me from reading.  Like, just be quiet, okay? #problemsofabooknerd
  • On this blog, I sing my praise of and affection for Sherlock Holmes from the rooftop.  Therefore, when I heard that there might have been a new Sherlock mystery by Conan Doyle discovered, I kind of flipped out.  But, we're not sure it's legit.  That issue was brought up on the Book Riot site this week, and it's worth a read here.   
  • I love when authors talk about reading, and this post  in the Huffington Post spotlights several quotes by Jane Austen and other authors describing "the divine pleasure of reading."

  • Finally, the internet kind of blew up last night (especially Twitter) over a dress.  Yeah, that's right.  The dress looks fairly normal: white with gold lace, except for those who think it's black and blue.  I totally see white and gold and I have not seen the colors change for me, but my family says I'm wrong and that it's black and blue.  Supposedly this has something to do with how sensitive our eyes are to certain colors or something, but you can read more here and here.  It's the craziest thing.  
Thanks for reading!  xo, Ella
