the new Chip Kidd book is out and well.. I just read a magnificent paragraph.

She was typing again. Now, obviously she was a stranger to me, but I already suspected that even if I were to lie on the floor in front of her with a meat axe growing out of my head, in a pool of my own hot homoglobin, the probability of Miss Preech calling an ambulance would be remote in the extreme- much less a cab, right now... I rang one for myself from the corner payphone.

This is as good as the Cheese Monekys. And yes Jackie, I brought it for you.

Yanked from [livejournal.com profile] libraries. Some of these looked interesting to me and I thought you guys might be interested in looking them over...

A reading list from RUSA’s Collection Development and Evaluation Section. A juried list of the best 2007 titles published in eight genre areas for adults—fantasy, historical fiction, horror, mystery, romance, science fiction, women’s fiction, and adrenaline (suspense, thrillers, and action titles). The first list of eight winning titles will be announced at the CODES awards reception during the ALA Midwinter Meeting in Philadelphia, January 27.

ETA: only fiction, non-fiction, and 3 poetry shortlists are here. I wish I could get ahold of the rest of the shortlists...

So of all the things that people have been posting ([livejournal.com profile] frog_lady's shoebox project link, etc...) My favorite one was linked by [livejournal.com profile] llyfr. It isn't really a spoiler.. but a what if Potters world was the real world.. Quite funny.
