Boknyheter #1

Forsøk på ny spalte! Prøver meg frem. Her kommer noen boknyheter jeg har snublet over den siste tiden:

Bok og Samfunn melder at Oslo Bokfestival hadde besøksrekord, med hele 110 000 besøkende i sentrum i løpet av festivalen.

New York Times skrev for et par uker siden om mannen som kunne tjene $28 000 i måneden på å skrive positive omtaler av bøker. Kjøpt og betalt av blant annet forfatterne selv. Ekspert anslår at omkring 1/3 av alle forbruker-omtalene på nettet er falske.

Hos KTVU kan vi lese at hovedbiblioteket i San Fransisco har montert plastskjermer på PC-ene slik at brukerne kan surfe porno uten at andre mennesker rundt blir forstyrret.

– Blant annet hos Pocketful of Books kan vi lese om et strålende eksempel fra virkeligheten når det gjelder hvordan forfattere ikke bør oppføre seg. Helvete var løs etter at Emily Giffins ektemann la igjen en usaklig kommentar på en negativ omtale av en av konas bøker. Etter at forfatteren selv engasjerte både egne fans og assistenten til å støtte henne, har diverse anmeldere og lesere vært under tunge skyts. Minst en av anmelderne har fått drapstrusler per telefon.

– Naomi Wolfs nye bok med tittelen Vagina har blitt sensurert av Apple, melder blant annet The Guardian. Skal man kjøpe den fra iTunes, kjøper man V****a. Dette illustrerer vel forfatterens poeng ganske greit..? Kjernen i boken er at vaginaen fortsatt er knyttet til skam.

Aftenposten kunne melde at Juritzen (i likhet med andre) boikotter Hegnar-bokhandelen Boklageret, dette fordi Boklageret ikke følger bokavtalen og selger bøkene betraktelig billigere enn andre.

10 000 uønskede bøker flommer over i gatene i Melbourne, Australia. Kunstprosjektet avsluttes med at folk kan plukke med seg så mange bøker man vil hjem.

Nye tall viser at 55% av alle YA-bøker kjøpes av voksne – og 78% av kjøperne beholder bøkene selv. 28% av kjøperne er mellom 30 og 44 år.

– Den enormt populære boken Divergent av Veronica Roth blir filmatisert. Filmingen skal etter planene begynne neste vår, mens filmen etter alt å dømme er ferdig mars 2014.

Aftenposten kunne melde at 22. juli-kommisjonens rapport har blitt en bestselger om den sammenlignes med vanlig sakprosa.

Følgende bøker havnet på Shortlist-en til Man Booker Prize 2012:
Will Self: Umbrella
Alison Moore: The Lighthouse
Deborah Levy: Swimming Home
Hilary Mantel: Bring Up The Bodies
Tan Twan Eng: The Garden of Evening Mist
Jeet Thayil: Narcopolis

– Da nyheten om at 250 000 e-bøker blir tilgjengelig gratis på Bokhylla.no kom, knelte siden samme dag. Og mens vi er inne på gratis bøker, bør det nevnes at Akademika har inngått en avtale som fører til at studenter får gratis e-bøker.

– Om du er nysgjerrig på debatten om bokbloggernes rolle i offentligheten, og hva det egentlig er som danner en god bokblogg, anbefaler jeg turen innom dette innlegget til Knirk, så kan du klikke deg til de forskjellige bloggene.

– Jeg har selvsagt bare valgt ut et lite knippe nyheter her. Dersom du vet om andre boknyheter som burde nevnes, synes jeg du skal legge igjen en kommentar. 🙂

I finished listening to I'll Be Gone In The Dark, by Michelle McNamara, who tragically died suddenly while working on this book. I picked this book for the prompt "a book published posthumously" in the #Popsugarreadingchallenge, so I'm off to a good start! If you're into true crime, you'll most likely enjoy this book. The crime writer Michelle McNamara became somewhat obsessed with hunting down the Golden State Killer - in fact, she was the one who coined that name. Before this, he was known under various other nicknames: The East Area Rapist, East Bay Rapist, The Original Night Stalker, Visalia Ransacker and The Diamond Knot Killer. He killed at least 13 people, raped more than 50 girls and women from 13 to 14 years old, and committed more than 100 burglaries while he was active between 1974 and 1986. This book is really as much about McNamara as it is about the Golden State Killer, because so much of her life revolved around bringing him to justice. And in 2018, not long after this book was released, Joseph James DeAngelo was arrested based on DNA evidence, using the method McNamara describes as the best method to catch him. It saddens me that she wasn't around to see him caught, but, as her husband and friends say, she did not care about getting any credit. She cared about getting justice for all of his victims. Good book, well worth a read or listen! #illbegoneinthedark #michellemcnamara #truecrime #goldenstatekiller #eastarearapist #eastbayrapist #originalnightstalker #visaliaransacker #diamondknotkiller #litteratur #literature #book #audiobook #audible #lesetips #nrklesetips #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #crime #krim #nonfiction #sakprosa #bookstagram #instabook #bookish
Happy New Year, friends! I've been in a bit of a reading slump for, well, the last couple of years really. I'll give a reading challenge a go in 2019, to see if that helps. @popsugar have been making these since 2015, I believe, and I quite like them. Don't know if I'll complete it, but as far as reading prompts go, these seem pretty good! Are you doing any challenges in 2019? #popsugarreadingchallenge #popsugarchallenge #popsugar #readingchallenge #bookchallenge #literature #litteratur #bokorm #lesehest #bookworm #bookish #instabook #bookstagram #reading #read #readingprompts #books #bok #bøker
I recently discovered Fatale through a Norwegian Snapchat account about books (@snaplioteket). I instantly ordered the first 4 issues. This one peaked my interest right from the beginning. A seemingly lovecraftian mystery, tentacles and all? Count me in! Looking forward to reading them. #fatale #edbrubaker #seanphillips #comics #graphicnovel #tegneserie #tegneserieroman #deathchasesme #lovecraftian #hplovecraft #tentacles #boktips #lesetips #nrklesetips #bookstagram #bookish #instabook #bokorm #bookworm #lesehest #litteratur #literature
Currently reading my first Nora Roberts novel. She's one of those authors whose name I've stumbled across regularly (obviously, as she has written more than 200 books), but never really been interested in checking out. Her most common genre, romance, isn't my cup of tea. But when I saw this book, Shelter in Place, I figured I'd give it a go. It's a story about the aftermath of a mass shooting in a mall. Not a romance novel. We follow a bunch of characters as they try to cope with what happened to them. Tangled up in this is a sort of crime thriller situation. I'm enjoying it so far! #shelterinplace #noraroberts #book #books #literature #litteratur #lesetips #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #currentlyreading #kindle #kindlepaperwhite #ereader #bookstagram #instabook #thriller #ebook #reading #lesernå

I recently turned 30 (yay!), and got a very cool present from @kavehrashidi and @ainahaugr. They went to the coolest bookstore in Oslo (@tronsmobok of course) and picked up Sakiko Nomura: Ango, which is signed by the way. They also gave me a cutting from one of their plants, which I will try not to kill. The best way to explain this book is to just copy what the publisher says: A collaboration between graphic designer Satoshi Machiguchi and Japanese photographer Sakiko Nomura. “Sakiko Nomura: Ango” is part of a literary project by publisher and graphic designer Satoshi Machiguchi. In the space of a book, photographs by contemporary Japanese artists meet with works of Japanese literature to form a new kind of expression. After collaborating with Daido Moriyama for the first three entries in the series, Machiguchi decided to work with Sakiko Nomura for this fourth and latest issue. Sakiko Nomura’s stunning, sensual photographs interact with the 1946 short-story “The War and a Woman” by Ango Sakaguchi. Sakaguchi’s powerful story, heavily censored by the American authorities at the time of its release, describes a brutal and remorseless image of the crushing force that is war. Nomura’s images and Sakaguchi’s words interact to draw out new nuances in each other. Thank you! ❤ #bok #bøker #litteratur #literature #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #sakikonomura #ango #angosakaguchi #art #lesetips #nrklesetips #bookish #instabook #bookstagram #instabook #art #kunst #tronsmo #stikling #japan #bookcoverlove #coverlove
There is this bookshelf at work, where several of us leave and pick up books. And pretty much everyone has been raving about the Icelandic author Yrsa Sigurđardóttir. So I brought one of her books home over the holidays, English title: The Undesired. Original title Kuldi. I was not blown away by it. But I liked it enough to give another one of her books a try, so I'm currently listening to the audio version of Dragsug (original title: Sogiđ), English title The Reckoning. Have you read any of her books? #books #bøker #bok #book #litteratur #literature #crime #krim #nordicnoir #yrsasigurdardottir #yrsasigurðardóttir #kuldi #deuønskede #theundesired #sogiđ #thereckoning #dragsug #kagge #bookstagram #instabook #bookish #coffee #bookporn #coffeeporn #read #reader

I bought a new book. 🙃 Norma by Sofi Oksanen. About: When Anita Naakka jumps in front of an oncoming train, her daughter, Norma, is left alone with the secret they have spent their lives hiding: Norma has supernatural hair, sensitive to the slightest changes in her mood–and the moods of those around her–moving of its own accord, corkscrewing when danger is near. And so it is her hair that alerts her, while she talks with a strange man at her mother’s funeral, that her mother may not have taken her own life. Setting out to reconstruct Anita’s final months–sifting through puzzling cell phone records, bank statements, video files–Norma begins to realize that her mother knew more about her hair’s powers than she let on: a sinister truth beyond Norma’s imagining. As Sofi Oksanen leads us ever more deeply into Norma’s world, weaving together past and present, she gives us a dark family drama that is a searing portrait of both the exploitation of women’s bodies and the extremes to which people will go for the sake of beauty. #norma #sofioksanen #books #book #bøker #litteratur #literature #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #lesetips #nrklesetips #bookish #instabook #bookstagram #newbook #bookhaul
