Saturday Sum-up

Here’s what I found bookish & interesting on my tour around the Internet this week:


From Coffee and a Good Book


I remember reading The Diary of Anne Frank when I was eleven or twelve. I was profoundly moved when I visited the Annex while visiting Amsterdam in the early 1990s. The world continues to surprise and dismay me:

Hundreds of Anne Frank’s book and other books about the Holocaust have been vandalized in dozens of libraries in Japan. Read the story here.

Dare I say it? Here’s an event even more sacred than the Stanley Cup! That’s right, it’s almost time for Canada Reads.

Do you know that there’s this whole thing on YouTube where people talk about the books they buy.  It’s compulsively watchable especially for those of us who buy multiple books at a time.

Have a great day.
