If you’re a subscriber of WD, you may have noticed a new front-of-the-book feature in our latest issue—Top Shelf. Branded as “A Smattering of Our Favorite Literary Goodies These Days,” it is, well, just that—things some of us WD staffers are currently crazy about.
The first edition (sneak peak to the right; click the image for a closer look) features selections such as aesthetically pleasing flash drives, the book The Great Typo Hunt, the Poetry Foundation’s iPhone app, and even some literary threads.
We just created the next installment of the column, and looking ahead, are curious: What would you include? What literary products, smartphone apps, non-writing-craft books, software, accessories and anything else related to the writing world are you currently geeking out over? Share them in the Comments section below, and they could help us shape a future edition.
Also, the lineup and discounted early registration have been announced for the Writer’s Digest Conference in New York, Jan. 21-23. Additional details are on their way on Promptly, but so far we’re planning a pitch slam, sessions on the future of publishing, craft, and platform, and much more. Check it all out here.

You realize the boat is sinking, but that’s not the worst thing that could happen. That happened last night.
