Everything about books intrigues me. Because of this I'm subscribed to couple magazines, like American Libraries and the Chronicle of Higher Education, as well as a frequent troller of EW's Shelf Life, Publishers Weekly, NPR Books, and The New York Times Book section.
That's why Bookin' It Round the Web was born! Below are links to some interesting articles or some fun graphics that I've found while on my daily internet adventures. Feel free to do this over on your blogs, and leave me links to any cool articles or posts in the comments!
