Madeleine L'Engle didn't like Jane Austen and other tributes...

Publisher's weekly has a wonderful tribute to the Queen, with first person rememberences from five people who knew her well, including her granddaughter.



On the subject of Jane Austen, I've started reading Emma Thompson's script for Sense and Sensibility. Well, I'm actually still stuck on the introduction, written by one of the producers. Did you know it took fifteen years to get that project underway? Emma probably wrote as many drafts!!


More tributes for M L'E on blogs: Bookmoot


Random item from American Libraries email: The Bookinist, a German creation, a book chair that holds up to 80 paperbacks, its own lamp, a wheel, and a place for a magnifying glass, pencil sharpeners, etc.


A compendium of beautiful libraries...


LISNEWS is moving over to Drupal??


The official Madeleine L'Engle site...




Who knew there was a National Unmarrieds week? It's Sept 17-23. Here's their website... An interesting (sad) fact I learned from census stats on their website--only 35% of singles vote. Married people are more likely to vote. Sad. I got the phone call today from Allegheny County asking if I'd be working the polls in November--YES!
