- First authorized sequel to A.A. Milne's beloved Winnie the Pooh series to land this October, 80 years later. The title will be Return to the Hundred Acre Wood.
- Philip Delves Broughton to appear on BNN's Squeezeplay tonight. I am LOVING his tell-all called Ahead Of The Curve: Two Years at Harvard Business School. Expect a review soon.
- The NYT approves a personal essay anthology (a first)! I guess it helps that Junot Diaz and Maud Newton are contributors.
- It's Book Blogger Appreciation Week this September so go and vote. You know what to do *much nudging and winking*.
- Twilight will be getting the graphic novel treatment. This storyline was born to be manga.
- If you've ever wondered whether selling your book on the Kindle will screw you, look no further.
- Film version of Chris Cleave's Little Beeto be produced by Nicole Kidman (who will also star).
- A book about grown-up treehouses, complete with glossy photos and documentary on DVD? My inner child is 10 kinds of ecstatic about this. (PS: it's called Treedom)
- I'm not huge on bloggers wanking off about blogging, it's too self-indulgent, but if Salon co-founder Scott Rosenberg does it, I guess it's OK.
- Third Bridget Jones flick in the works - Jezebel on why this once fresh & funny female is empowering no more (aaaaamen).
