Check This Out!
I like to check out the Guardian's book section periodically--there's always something interesting. Here are a couple of today's tidbits... --Interested in what they're reading across the pond? Check out this list of 250 Most Borrowed Titles from UK Libraries 2008-09. Three of the top four titles belong to James Patterson. --There's a new book about Emily Dickinson out in the U.K., & this review makes an interesting read for scholars of Dickinson. --Rules for Writers: This is a new series they're doing, with writers like Hilary Mantel, Roddy Doyle, Zadie Smith, & Sarah Waters weighing in. Here are Margaret Atwood's rules. --Also check out their quizzes on literature & current events! They even have an online bookclub!
