A WEEKLY ROUNDUP OF INTERNET CURIOSITIES FROM THE BOOK WORLD

Mo Willems
ET has a fun interview with one of my favourite kids authors, Mo Willems, and a pre-view of his new Pigeon app.

Light reading
When an e-reader is loaded with thousands of books, does it gain any weight? Yes (but not much).

Reading by the lb.
Good thing Kindle doesn't "...sell books by the pound — $3.99/lb"

Tintin lessons
"Anybody who is constructing a comic strip would be crazy not to learn from Hergé" says cartoonist and author John Fardell. (Steven Spielberg, are you listening?)

Trending
10 Literary Trends that Need to Go Away

Top texts
Rate your studiousness: How many of the top-selling textbooks of all time have you read? (ummm...zero here)

Geeky reads
Rate your geekyness: How many of the top books for geeks have you read? (five here, though some of those five I've read multiple times. I guess I am more geek than student, whatever that means.)

The views expressed in the Writer-in-Residence blogs are those held by the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of Open Book: Toronto.
