Goodbye May, Hello June!
Some lucky book bloggers are headed to Book Expo America (BEA) this weekend. They'll be meeting lots of authors, getting lots of books and ideas. They will also be holding a blogger signing! Imagine that. I'm sure many will be Twittering events. If you're feeling left out, there will be a Twitter Pity Party on Friday night 8-10 EST. There will be prizes...and cake (BYOC). PS- There is also a Pout-a-thon all weekend at Mad Woman in the Forest.
*Kanye West, son of professor, proud non-reader, writes a "book." Oh the irony! I can't even begin, but blogger Yule Time has a lot to say about it.
*Man sues Guiness Book of World Records. How does one sue the Roman Empire?
*Wow! An "ATM for books". Books printed on demand. Interesting.
*For dog loving book people: a librarian's dog ornament collection finds a new home.
*Not a dog lover? How about cats? Bookstore A Novel Idea gets a couple of cats and helps out hundreds more.
*Alice Munro wins the Man Booker Prize. Congrats Alice!
*The Obamas to hold a book festival. (Take that Kanye!)
*It only took 67 years but Archie proposes.
*Etsy Love: Did you know Pirates Read Too?
Hope you all enjoy the weekend, wherever you may be!
