- Tamora Pierce (winner of this year’s Margaret A. Edwards Award) sits down with SLJ and gives her thoughts on everything from kick-butt heroines to the story behind her own name. If you didn’t love Tammy before, you will after reading this!
- Librarian Travis Jonker is keeping track of the top ten circulated titles in his library by age group. Are there any overlaps with your library?
- As a way to promote their summer reading program, the Seattle Public Library created the world’s longest domino book chain! Our question: who had to reshelve all of the 2,131 books?
- Happy (belated) birthday, Richard Scarry!
- We love this TED talk by Lisa Bu about the books you turn to during a personal crisis.
- Flavorwire has 30 of the most beautiful Sci-Fi book covers. Some of these deserve to be framed!
- 22 Maps that Show the Deepest Linguistic Conflicts in America. I hope that one day we can come together as a nation and agree on how to pronounce the word “crayon.”
- Another cool map: the location of all of the publishers scattered around NYC.
Have a safe, fun weekend!
