SHAUN SMITH'S SUNDAY SUNDRIES

Share |

A WEEKLY ROUNDUP OF INTERNET CURIOSITIES FROM THE BOOK WORLD

Dreamy
"Oh look! It’s a new issue of Literary Tiger Beat featuring the dreamiest female teen characters."

Mark
Do you need an apostrophe, or don't you?

Muscles
"...and along the way I knocked up the housekeeper." Watch the trailer for Arnold Schwarzenegger's autobio. Or maintain a small portion of your sanity and don't. (Interesting to note his name is not on the book's cover.)

Celeb
Al Pacino reading Shakespeare's Sonnet 150 sounds like a flat tire on a gravel road, and since when did Meryl Streep have an English accent? Audio "For those of us who enjoy our poetry more when it's slightly tainted with fame, glitz, and glamour." (Enjoy it now before it gets shut down for copyright infringement.)

Library
Cute animated timewaster: The Library

Objects
When your UFO reading list gets thin, as is inevitable, here's the place to go.
