Weekend Reading: Lost Season 6 Secrets

lostposter23.jpgToday io9 posted leaked footage alleged to be the first four minutes of the final season of the television show Lost. The first episode debuts on Feb. 2, and it tops our list of recommended weekend reading.

For the last five seasons, Lost has been loaded with literary references, and this week GalleyCat broke the news of a New Directions novel that will play a role in the upcoming season.

It has been an eventful week at GalleyCat Headquarters. We covered a major product launch, a digital conference, and some sad literary news. Amid all this excitement, GalleyCat Reviews finally launched.

We also gave publishers tips on how they can use virtual currencies and virtual goods, following the example of Facebook-based games like FarmVille and Mafia Wars.

We also covered the Digital Book World conference, a two-day crash course in 21st Century publishing.

We lost three great writers.

Finally, and some company called Apple released some fancy new gadget that you can use to read books.
