If you read nothing else in today’s links*, I hope you read Matthew Norman’s account of a reading at Barnes & Noble where no one showed up. Or at least he thought that no one had showed up to his reading until he awkwardly asked the crowd and two people raised their hands. One even stayed until he finished reading! And that is the beginning of this delightful story of how @Fatty_Magoo became a hero to authors in empty rooms everywhere.

* but you should really read the other links as well because they are pretty great.
