And you guys are looking pretty sharp out there too. It must be because it's Friday.
*Tomorrow's the Big Day: Dewey's Read-a-thon. If you haven't signed up yet, there's still time. Right now there are 160 readers. Whoa!
*Halifax at War is a big winner at the Atlantic Book Awards. I'll have to check it out.
*Interesting idea from GalleyCat, a call for publishers to give reviewers ebook readers. The numbers are impressive.
*A book blogger panel at the BookExpo America. Can't be there but want to have your say? Natasha @ Maw Books is encouraging book bloggers to give her ideas for topics.
*I haven't commented on #amazonfail, which if you don't know you can read about it in this National Post article, because I was waiting to see how Amazon was going to handle it: "Amazon still hasn't issued a strong apology on this scandal which has been fuelling more speculation and anger from the literary community." *Crickets*
*ALA says The Kite Runner is one of the most challenged books of 2008. Question: how can a book be changed for 'nudity' unless it has pictures?!
*Vlogs: Everyone's doing it. This week Natasha, Bethany and Darren made vlogs about the Read-a-thon. Chris vlogged about Bad Bloggers and Eva vlogged Library Loot. Some fancy editing and these 3 bloggers tell us why they have a book blog. Still not brave enough to try it myself.
*Make your own bookplates courtesy of Martha.
*Etsy Love: From Barking Bird Art, Birds in a Book Club. It's a limited edition.
Hope I'll see a lot of you during the Read-a-thon. If not, have a great weekend.
