I found a couple of interesting things while reading this morning, and I thought I'd share them with the rest of you. So, if you're bored, take a few minutes and check them out. First, here's a really great picture of Obama during his campaign travels. It does my heart good to see a public official reading a book, and an intelligent book at that. The short blurb about the photo contains a good description for the book he's reading -- The Post American World by Fareed Zakaria. I have a suspicion that sales of this book will now skyrocket.
The other tidbit I came across this morning is a great article with lots of photos of book jackets, movie posters, etc. involving the "A-Frame." I'd never really thought about it before, but this is definitely an oft-used technique. I especially like the older book jackets from the 40s and 50s.
I came across both of these via Paper Cuts, the New York Times blog about books.
I will try to do a review of Wilderness Tips, a short story collection by Margaret Atwood in the next day or so. I really, REALLY liked this one. I'm so proud of myself for reading more short stories. :) I don't know why I have ignored this genre for so long.
Have a Great Thursday!
