That cat would be disappointed here right now. The spring birds haven't arrived yet. I always get excited when I see the first robin. Haven't seen one yet. We need this snow to disappear and then we can think spring. It's a beautiful day today though. I must get out and enjoy it.
So what is happening in the book world today?
*Harper Collins vs The Library: the Protest.
*Justine Larbalestier talks about the rumoured YA mafia and why you don't have to worry about it. (Maureen Johnson also had an excellent discussion about it on Twitter yesterday: hashtag #YAmafia.)
*The Observer looks at the 10 best neglected classics. Do you agree?
*Looking for love? Try the library.
*Cute! A Daddy & Daughter duo trying to break into publishing.
*A lot of young actresses vying for Hunger Games Katniss role. That's a big part.
*Authors tells The Guardian readers what books they'd like to give or receive for World Book Night.
*To celebrate Dr Seuss's birthday and Read Across America, two first ladies read to some kids.
*The new Water for Elephants trailer. It looks really good!
*Etsy Love: A very interesting way to create something from an old book, paperflowers from Dragonflies' Shop. Amazing but slightly upsetting to this book lover. (Wish I knew what book it was.)
Have a good one!
