Booklicious: Friday Bookmarks

July 16, 2010


*Hey, you guys know that great Western classic, Arabian Nights? Yeah, neither do I. 

*Good news, Twihards! Looks like you'll be treated to that Breaking Dawn childbirth scene after all. No word yet on the rough honeymoon sex. 

*Old Spice is trying really hard to ditch its scent-of-an-old-man reputation. I think this hot shirtless guy talking about libraries should do the trick.

*Move over wizards, vampires and angels - nannies are the hot new trend. Again.

*Karl Rove wants you to join his book club. No, really. 

*I really want someone to go to this spelling bee for cheaters and report back - it sounds all kinds of amazing and hilarious. Also, the show organizers need to mass-produce that poster. It's also all kinds of amazing and hilarious.

I spent some time in Saudi Arabia and trying to read the weekly edition of Time and Newsweek when the censor had either taken black marking pen to offensive passages or pictures, or worst cut it out, showed the degree of control they exacted. Some editions had more missing than not. Censorship in any format is dangerous, for whatever reason.
Great blog!!

It's incredible that they even let the magazines in the country, considering the lengths they go to in order to control content. I suppose they think banning them outright would attract a bit too much attention.

We are so fortunate in this country, and most of the time we don't even realize it. Thank you so much writing.
