How fabulous is it that Occupy Wall Street and other Occupation cities have libraries?  Love it.

Barnes and Nobel pulls 100 DC graphic novels after DC makes an "exclusive" deal with Kindle Fire.  From PW.

You guys...there's a Men of the Stacks 2012 calendar featuring male librarians.

Do libraries really destroy books?  Well, I don't think "destroy" is exactly the right word.  But...yeah...we get rid of books.  Can you imagine what a library would be like that never weeded their collection? From WBUR.

GeekGirl Con was this past weekend.  It sounds great.  Maybe next year it won't be the same weekend as Yom Kippur and I'll be able to go!  From PW.

Pottermore has pushed back the release of its digital books and pulled a popular game because of high user use they couldn't deal with.  Kind of would have thought they'd be better prepared.  From The Guardian.

Bitterblue is coming out in May!  So excited!  I think the cover looks great.  From PW.

A personal look at Maurice Sendak.  From The Guardian.

According to TechCrunch, in less than 15 year print books will be basically extinct, even in the developing world, and replaced with e-readers and e-books.  I'm skeptical.  So is Jonathan Liu at Wired.  He raises the question, "How will people who can't afford e-readers read books?"  Are things really going to change so dramatically that everyone will be able to afford one?  Even in places that don't currently have electricity?  

New books from Gail Carriger!  Heart.  I can't wait to read her YA series.  It's not coming out until 2013 though.
