A short collection of items for your perusal and enjoyment:
• How do avid readers find their next book? At So Many Books, Stefanie wrote about an academic study that confirms much of what we readers know about ourselves. Oh, and it says we learn through recreational reading. Yes, we knew that too, didn’t we? 🙂 Post found via Susan at You Can Never Have Too Many Books.
• Via today’s Shelf Awareness: A book club for adults with intellectual disabilities. Books for Dessert. So cool. It’s expanding, too. Oh, and there’s a similar program started at Ohio State University, Next Chapter Book Club. This makes me happy.
• In Ravenna, Ohio, [NPR, where I found the story, inexplicably got the town and state wrong?] Reed Memorial Library will let you check out a cake pan. They have more than 300 pans in inventory. They found the story (part of a “viral” segment) at Pop Goes the Library. Apparently other libraries do this too, now. I think I might have to add this blog to my feed reader.
• Also on NPR on Saturday morning, was a story about Norman Mailer’s book editor, at least I think so. But I can’t find it, to listen to it (I was just told about it, after the fact.). Can anyone point me in the direction of this archive?
