‘Ready Player One’ Author Signs New Book Deal

If you’re a fan of Ready Player One, listen up because bestselling author Ernest Cline is coming out with yet another book. (And if you haven’t yet read Ready Player One, you really need to put it on your “To Read” list ASAP.)

According to Entertainment WeeklyReady Player One author Ernest Cline just signed a seven-figure deal to publish his third book with Crown Publishing. His second book, Armada, just came out this summer (and yes, I already have a copy. I just haven’t started reading it yet). The third is still untitled, and those involved won’t release any more information other than to say it’ll remain in the sci-fi genre.

So far, film rights were sold for both Ready Player One and Armada, but not yet for the highly under wraps third novel.

Get ‘Dancing with Mrs. Dalloway: Stories of the Inspiration Behind Great Works of Literature’ in Hardcover for $7.20

After reading a whole bunch of modern and recent bestsellers, it’s always nice to come back to a classic. Recently, I read The Age of Innocence and Wuthering Heights. Now I’m re-reading The Great Gatsby, in preparation for the new Baz Luhrmann movie coming out this fall. But now there’s a book that has the backstories of all your favorite classics. Dancing with Mrs. Dalloway: Stories of the Inspiration Behind Great Works of Literature offers the inspiration behind fifty classic books, including Jane Eyre, Anna Karenina, The Bell Jar and even Winnie-the-Pooh.

Some examples are listed in Amazon’s description of the book.

Gabriel García Márquez was driving to Acapulco with his family when he slammed on the brakes, turned the car around, and insisted they abandon their trip so he could return home to write. He had good reason to cut the trip short-a childhood memory of touching ice had suddenly sparked the first line to a novel that would become his most famous work, One Hundred Years of Solitude.

C. S. Lewis, on the other hand, spent decades pondering the scene that inspired The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. When Lewis was sixteen, he had a peculiar daydream: a faun carried a bundle of parcels and an umbrella through snow-covered woods. Lewis was almost forty when he decided to write a novel that grew around the vision.

If you’re a lover of literature — like I am — this book sounds awesome.

And now it’s available in hardcover for only $7.20.

And on your Kindle for $10.99.

Get ‘Everything Is Illuminated’ by Jonathan Safran Foer on Kindle for $8.53, Paperback $10.87

Jonathan Safran Foer is widely known for his novel Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, which was made into a movie last year. I read Extremely Loud and didn’t enjoy it very much. When I dislike a big bestseller, I tend to do a lot of research to find out why people liked it. In my findings, I learned that many critics liked Extremely Loud, but still felt that Safran Foer’s first novel Everything Is Illuminated was better.

Everything Is Illuminated tells the story of a young man who sets out to find the woman who may or may not have saved his grandfather from Nazis. Like Extremely Loud, Everything was also turned into movie, starring Elijah Wood.

Now the bestselling novel is available for only $8.53 on your Kindle.

It’s also available in paperback for $10.87.
