Exemplars of bookish delight

Happy May Day!

This week, a friend posted the link to a Q&A with Gene Wolfe. It was originally posted on the MIT Technology Review last summer. So, while it may not technically be considered new, it was new to me, and may be new to you. And neither of us should be missing out on such good stuff!

In other bookish news . . .

There was a lot of bad news coming from Baltimore this past week. But, much like any time of crisis, there are glimmers of hope. One of my favorites: Baltimore Libraries Stay Open Through Riots, Because โ€˜The Community Needs Usโ€™ (MTV news).

Remember when Rooth gave her review of Maus? Well, it has been banned in Russia for its cover (NPR has the story).

Speaking of book art, take a look at this master craftsman as he restores an old book to its former glory.

Tomorrow, May 2, is Independent Bookstore Day. Just in case you needed a good excuse to buy yourself a new book . . . or ten.

As if that werenโ€™t enough, tomorrow (May 2, 2015) is also Free Comic Book Day! Search your zip code for a participating store.

      I missed it, too. I thought about it right as I was getting ready to go to bed. ๐Ÿ™

      Also, I missed this message. Why am I not getting notifications? So rude.
