Exemplars of bookish delight

Doerr

For those of us residing in Idaho, there’s really only one bookish news item worth mentioning. That being, Anthony Doerr (All the Light We Cannot See) has won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.  I cannot imagine a more deserving recipient.

With that, a few other bookish bits from the week:

We bid farewell to M.H. Abrams. He was 102 (New York Times). And might I just say, college just wouldn’t have been the same without his Norton Anthology of English Literature.

We caught a sneak peek at Dr. Seuss’ book What Pet Should I Get (CNN)—and by peek, I do mean peek (CNN).

Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti celebrated World Book Day by posting a photo of five wee books floating on the International Space Station (Space.com).  How fun is that?

The Oyster Review provided us with their very own 100 Best Books of the Decade.

U.S.A. Today offers some weekend picks for book lovers, in case you haven’t a clue what to read in the coming days. Luckily, I know exactly what I’ll be reading: Peace like a River, by Leif Enger. I have until next Thursday to finish it. Book club, you know.
