Discover; ghosts

Tags: , ,

Two fun things on the internet: Ursula K. Le Guin writes about book discovery at Book View Cafe and even throws in an old joke in the comments. I love this site (and I’m on Goodreads—goofy picture and all—and love it) but I also love wandering actual bookshops because I find books outside my usual zones. (I’ve pasted Le Guin’s schedule in from her calendar in case you’re in—or going to—the Pacific Northwest and can go see her, she’s fabulous.)

Elsewhere, the ghost of Wm. Shakespeare is haunting publishing with yet another title (“AKA Shakespeare: A Scientific Approach to the Authorship Question“) on the “authorship” question. Not at all unconnected, check out Sarah Smith’s A New Shakespeare Poem here for only 99c.
