It's the shortest- and for me, coldest- month of the year, but the days are getting longer. It's nice that it's no longer pitch black outside at suppertime. Any big weekend plans?
*"Delightfully creepy" Coraline opens today.
*When you're banning books, you got to be clever.
*Landing a plane in a river? The last thing you should be worrying about is a library book. Kudos to Mr Sullenberger!
*Some books are loved more than others. Brits love Harry Potter at the library.
*Stephen King disses Stephanie Meyer. Meeeeooooow!
*This is an interesting story about copyright infringement. Did the artist of this famous Obama painting steal the image from a photographer?
*Estella's Revenge for February is all about Desire.
*Raidergirl starts a new feature on An Adventure in Reading: Bookword Game. Giving names to bookish phenomenon.
*Etsy Love: So cute! A sunny reading print from Smile Shop, Read, Read, Read... or Reading Is Smart. This might be my new favorite shop.
*Finally, Stephen Colbert demands a Newbery when he finds out Neil Gaiman won his for The Graveyard Book. (Canadians must view it here.)
I just finished 1984. Once I get my head around it, I will post my thoughts. Have a great weekend!
