Weekend Edition 9-25

Bulletin Board

  • The Festival of Books was a success, at least from my perspective. A lengthier post will follow in the day or so. And I only came home with four new books — unless you count the DVD I got from Michael Hart of Project Gutenberg. It has more than 29,500 books on it.
  • Today is the first day of Banned Books Weekdoubt I’ll be able to do as extensive and as many posts as last year but will try to do a couple things this week.
  • My review of The Best American Comics 2010 appears over at Blogcritics.

Worthwhile Reading in the Interweb Tubes

  • The Freedom World (“The idea that as a literary person there are a certain set of books you must read because they are important parts of the literary conversation is constantly implied, yet quite ridiculous.”)

Bookish Linkage

  • Someone has created a perfume called “In The Library” that apparently is supposed to make you smell like you are or are in a library. It is described as “a warm blend of English Novel, Russian & Moroccan Leather Bindings, Worn Cloth and a hint of Wood Polish.” If you say so, I guess. (via)

Nonbookish Linkage

My mind is my own mystery

“Reality,” The Lost Gonzo Band

  • I too am a book blogger from South Dakota and attended the Book Festival yesterday! While we have very different tastes, I read YA for my students, it’s so awesome to see another SD (or even Midwest) Book Blogger out there! Will you be going to the Twin Cities Book Festival in October?
