It seems like a slow reading week for me. Things are a bit hectic here.
- Mini Book Expo is a site I've been eyeing but haven't tried it out. You request a book, pay the shipping, and then review it. I don't know if any of you bloggers have tried it, but if you have, how is it?
- After the Lemony Snicket incident, you got to wonder what's real on the internet. Here's a story from Josh Olson that illustrates that you can't believe everything you see. It also had me thinking, is this for real? He is a screenwriter after all! It's a long article but worth the jaw dropping end.
- This video (that takes a minute to load) from Indigo books made me cry. I had no idea the state of Canada's school libraries were so bad.. The statistics are shameful.
- I can't believe I just found this site: A Novel Challenge. If there's a reading challenge out there, you can find it here.
- Last call for submissions for This is the Life's Bookworm Carnival. Today is the last day.
- From Post Secret: a new book and an interesting book trailer.
- I made the mistake of going to the bookstore. I bought Getting Over Edgar by Joan Barfoot and Negotiating with the Dead: A Writing on Writing by Margaret Atwood. Darn sale table!
