A WEEKLY ROUNDUP OF INTERNET CURIOSITIES FROM THE BOOK WORLD

Introducing the Paranga
Don't they already have something that does that? Oh yeah, it's called a book!

To all those editors who don't return my emails.
Perhaps lighten your load with the edit minion.

Corpus Libris
Putting the body in body of literature.

Here hair here
A new book of drawings from artist Christina Christoforou challenges you to name that celebrity hairdo.

"Bookstores are doomed, there is no doubt."
This profile of publisher Benedict Taschen on CBC News is certainly interesting, but what really caught my eye was the crazy space ship he lives in. (c/o CasOpt)

Eat my words?
No, eat my pen!

Introducing the bjnook ...wait, the what?
*Ahem!* I am not going to make juvenile remarks about the name apparently given (see the stickers on the thing) to this innovative use for the old card catalogues in the Bloomington Junior High School's library. No I am not. *snicker snicker*

Hey faithful readers, starting this April, be sure to check out my new column, "Fiction Craft," about the nuts'n'bolts of making stuff up, over on OBTO's sister site, Open Book Ontario.

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.
