I've got some longer post ideas percolating, but for now, I'll just direct your attention to a couple of things of note on the net at the moment:
- Mark has suggested moving the LA Times Book Review entirely online. In the comments, there are various arguments for or against the move. It doesn't seem terribly radical to me (of course, my first thought upon reading this post was "Wait, they still publish a print version of the LA Times?), and I like the idea of an expanded book review, with features, interviews, longer reviews, more content, and better writers. So what's the hold up?
- Nam Le has been everywhere the past few weeks, including my couch (which, I fear, shall never be the same). He's the belle of the blog ball at the moment. He revealed to me that the set of Titlepage is inhumanly cold. Those brave panelists hide it well.
- HBO has purchased Sloane Crosley's collection I Was Told There'd Be Cake, guaranteeing that it will forever be compared to Sex and The City (I'm like a week late on this. My internet was out over the 4th of July weekend. Thanks a lot, AT&T.).
