Here is a roundup of the last links of summer. This week we have authors' homes to visit for a last summer vacation, a Labor Day Reading List, a new cover on an old favorite and outstanding vintage illustration. Put down the hot dog and back away from the grill. Here we go:
A Pinterest board, Literary Travel, has all of your favorite author's homes that have been converted to visitable landmarks. Planning a world tour? Start here.
The Management here at The Pen and Ink Blog loves nothing better than to swing in a hammock, sip their lemonade and read a good book. On this Labor Day, reading shouldn't feel like work, so The Pen and Ink Blog offers a Labor Day Reading List via Flavorwire.
Truly fine illustration in a children's book can significantly enhance the whole experience for a reader and create a lasting impression for a lifetime. At BrainPickings, they've found some classic Maurice Sendak illustrations circa 1960 for the Velveteen Rabbit. These are priceless. Take a peek.
We hope you enjoyed this little vacation for your brain. Now back to work!
