Booklicious: Friday Bookmarks

March 26, 2010


*Actor Christopher Lee reads Jabberwocky. Watch it, love it, watch it again.

*In less classy news, some of the cast members of Jersey Shore are releasing a book that teaches readers how to live the authentic Jersey Shore life. Huh, I didn't realize that involved reading.

*Two reasons I wish I were a kid again: 1. Instead of crappy plastic toys, Cheerios is placing copies of 1 Zany Zoo in cereal boxes. The book, by Lori Degman, was the winning entry in the 2008 Cheerios New Author Contest. 2. LeVar Burton has hinted via Twitter that Reading Rainbow is returning to the airwaves.

*A first edition of The Wind in the Willows sold at auction on Tuesday for nearly $50,000. I have got to move into a more lucrative career field...

*Jeff Howe over at Crowdsourcing wants to harness the power of Twitter for awesome book good by getting as many people as possible to read the same book at the same time. Basically, it'd be the world's biggest book club. Can you imagine?
