At the Libraries: Most Referenced Song in Literature

Take a quick guess, and then click through and see if you are right — what is the number one most referenced song in literature? I didn’t get it, but surely one of you will?
Move to New York to become a writer? Here’s a powerful manifesto of why you should keep the faith!
I think you’re just going to have to look at the pictures to get a sense of what exactly a “Book Mountain Library” is. Trust me, it’s worth it!

And then be sure to look at these great photos illustrating the power of books!
Libraries and robots! It’s not so strange a combination as you might think.
The name says it all — here are 20 New Titles for Children’s Books (based entirely on their covers!). Too funny! (Thanks, Holly!)
Wouldn’t you love to have your very own book clock? Well, here’s how to make one!
This is the story I should have run last week to mark J.K. Rowling’s new book! Thanks, as always, The Onion.
She’s not the only one who made the switch from children’s lit to adult, though. Please do check out this interview with R.L. Stine, who has an adult thriller coming out just in time for Halloween! Evil twins sound pretty spooky to me…
Did you have a nice Banned Books Week? Mine was great, thanks, especially when I came across this story about other, better things to ban for next year!
