  • Rebecca’s Pocket points us to How to Read and The Reader’s Bill of Rights.
  • Readers of SF Signal come up with a list of The Top 26 SF Books You’ve Never Read. They hit it on the mark me with as I haven’t read any of them. Look out TBR stack.

  • AlterNet uses a Berkeley bookstore to explore why booksellers are going belly up. (Via So Many Books, where Stefanie, like me, is doing her part.)
  • The Quill Awards are back.
