From the funnest author we ever met!
Last year was something of a pathetic reading year for me. All the worse since I have a book blog. Needless to say, this year I have determined to do better. Even still, the question remains–which makes the list? In that regard, David Carr once explained his reading hierarchy: “Books I’d like to read, books I should read, books I should read by friends of mine and books I should read by friends of mine whom I am likely to bump into.” Except for the last bit, I can totally relate. So far, I’m an equal opportunity reader. You?
With that, here are a few bookish bits from the week (emphasis on few):
Princeton University has been bequeathed a rare book collection worth $300 million.
Dr. Seuss has a ‘new’ book coming out July, 2015. And by Dr. Seuss, I do mean Dr. Seuss.
Barnes and Noble gives us 10 reasons they’re inviting Neil Gaiman and Daniel Handler to their next dinner party (as if they need to give reasons).
Abe Books explains how movies can inspire a search for first editions and other fine books. So long as the book truly exists and it goes to a good home, it’s all good.
