Today's Saturday post is not a fav photo or a blog link...but rather a group of interesting book-related links I think you should click.

1.  Best pubs in literature.  Do you like beer?  Do you like literature?  Do you like Great Britain?  If you answered yes to one or all of the above, you should check out this article.

2. Can the Internet save the book?  A futurist's take.

3. Beware of Blurbs.  How much stock can you really take in those one sentence ellipsis-marked book accents?

5. Ben Franklin is a big fat idiot.

6.  Two books about Elliot Spitzer.  Okay, I get the interest.  But this one: Two books about Henry Clay.  Really?  Two people had this idea at once?

7.  The Crime Wave.  A list of mysteries to read this summer.

8. Do novels still matter?  Well, do they?

  6. Oh yeah! *clap clap clap* I love these. I think your link posts are great. Thanks.


  7. If novels still matters? Yes of course. I can do all the trivial thinking myself; the non-trivial thinking I find in good novels >:)
