- First a gentle reminder that I have a horror blog too. I post on RA for All: Horror at least 2x a week. Recently, I have had this post on Hug a Monster Day and this one on an upcoming Horror Writers Association Roundtable discussion about Ray Bradbury.
- Try as I might, I do not like the fiction of Lev Grossman. On paper I should, but in reality I do not. However, I do enjoy following his posts as a Time Magazine entertainment blogger. Take this one where he reviews 7 books, speed dating style. I can relate, I am months behind on my book reviews.
- Still looking for a book to read on your summer vacation? Readers Advisor Online is still compiling a list of summer reading lists.
- It's old news now, but as I said, I am behind on the links I wanted to post about. The first Will Eisner Award for libraries was given out at ALA. Click here for Graphic Novel Reporters coverage.
- Check out this closed Wal-Mart that was turned into a public library.
- Sue Polanka posted her report on the E-Books collection development panel that she was part of at ALA. It includes their slides.
- Because I am probably the only blogger in the word who has not linked to J.K. Rowling's new book cover.
- Amazon's Best Books of the Year So Far is out. Even better there are editors picks by genre. Even even better, Gone Girl is on the list. Did I mention Gillian Flynn will be that the BPL on 7/11? Technically, all slots are filled, but you can email me to get on the wait list. We will fill the room, so if someone doesn't show, there is at least a chance that you can get in. Also, we will allow people who show up the chance to get their books signed as people begin to filter out.
