SHAUN SMITH'S SUNDAY SUNDRIES

Share |

A WEEKLY ROUNDUP OF INTERNET CURIOSITIES FROM THE BOOK WORLD

Underground
A very cool library underground: The Delft Technical Library (with a checkout desk made out of books).

Floating
A very cool bookstore in a 430-foot ship: Logos Hope.

No
Better, actually, because I don't believe for one millisecond that the average grade-ten student has read all of the books in this CS Monitor quiz: "Are you as well red as a average grade-ten student?"

Blood
How did Cormac McCarthy write Blood Meridian? One word at a time, right? Yup, and then he crossed a bunch of them out. Slate peeks at his archives.

Map
"The Global Map of Publishing Markets is the first visual representation of publishing around the world by the numbers."

Trash
A bunch of really crappy books trashed by the critics.

Pietry
If creating poetry had the visual appeal of cooking (which it doesn't) the TV series might look something like this.
