It's been a busy Friday and with a massive snowstorm(maybe) approaching, all I can put together is some quick but worthwhile notes. My lists of ten in various categories will be getting posted next week starting on Monday. Fiction will bat lead-off.
*Keith Hollihan is reading here on the 15th at 7 p.m. Check this out.
*Here's a little feature on the store that was posted this week.
*I am blatantly stealing this quote from our good friends in New York City at Three Lives and Co. They have a fantastic store and in their December e-mail to customers they included a line from Patti Smith when she was accepting her National Book Award. She said,"Please, no matter how we advance technologically, please don't abandon the book.There is nothing in our material world more beautiful than the book." Hurray for Patti Smith.
*Speaking of hurray, huge congrats to Graywolf Press. They will publish Liu Xiaobo in English.
