Weekend Edition: 6-1

That’s right. Only one book-related links this week. Why? I attribute it to many of my usual sources being infatuated with Book Expo America this week, right after a three-day weekend. Or maybe I’m just more obtuse than normal this week.

Interesting Reading in the Interweb Tubes

  • Denouncing the Classics (“…the current criteria for classics are more a matter of sociology than of aesthetics.”)

Extreme Overreaction of the Week

Lawsuit of the Week

Nonbookish Linkage

There’s no depth to my shallowness.
