What's up?

For me, songs mark the summers in memories. For others, it is books- Summer Reading 2006

New & Upcoming Book Releases

This Weekend on Book TV - the 2006 Printers Row Book Fair - Chicago - The Schedule

Dan Brown's effigy, copies of book, VCD burnt

Borders' financial woes hit execs- this time- with 90 laid off

Sam Goody removing money losing books from nearly every outlet, supplanting books with only manga, and dropping Ingram as it supplier for Baker & Taylor,
while Tower Records increases its book holdings

Mrs Beeton's cook books plagiarized? (Like anyone believes Martha Stewart's recipes are completely original and not from other sources...Remember Julia Child? I recall a shortbread recipe Martha touted as hers a while back that was from The Joy of Cooking and I knew it immediately. Cooking has
always been that way.)

Lemony Snicket's alter ego can't even get noticed

Hungarian poet Gyorgy Somlyo dead at 85
