Week Links

Just a few of the items that caught my interest this past week, around the Internet.

The Bookish

(Who knew Shaquille O'Neal has now authored a series of children's books?!)
Bloomsbury Publishing

Nights of Terror, Days of Weird
(A look at author Terry Southern and a book of his letters, edited by his son.)
Oxford American / Will Stephenson / 22 March 2016

The Oldest Libraries Around the World
("A selection of beautiful places to start your day.")
Flavorwire / Alison Nastasi / 24 April 2016

Shakespeare First Folio Time for an Anniversary
(In three volumes, shelved in the library at Mount Stuart House.)

Was there a cover-up over Shakespeare's death?

The Spectator / Lloyd Evans / 23 April 2016

And the Non-Bookish

These Levi's jeans are designed to to give you a wedgie, which seems wrong

Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
