"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Bookin' It Round the Web

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 Publishers Weekly, NPR Books, and The New York Times Book section.   
Through these awesome resources, I've gathered a few interesting articles having to do with the book world!  I'm calling this feature Bookin' It Round the Web, and it will be periodically posted when I find some interesting news to share! 

  • Are you still in love with books?  Because I know I am, and this article expounds the awesome of print books!
  • NPR has an awesome interview with Judy Blume talking about censorship, writing books for kids, and keeping books relevant for the new generation.
  • Let's not forget our old favorites in the middle of all these shiny new books; check out this article featuring new books from some loved authors!
  • Let's talk about the ironic fact that Fahrenheit 451 is in e-book format.
  • Libraries across the country are in desperate straits: Molly Raphael, President of the American Library Association has some interesting things to say on the subject.
  • Want to find out what the new trends teens are into after they "stake the vampire", me too!
  • Hey publishers, read why you should love the library!  Oh and why everyone else should too!

If you find any interesting, funny, intelligent, or silly book related articles while you're "bookin' it round the web" then drop them in the comments and they might show up in the next edition!
