Long Live the Book!

Via the New York Times, here’s a piece about a woman nearing the end of her quest to read a book a day over the course of a year. You can go to Nina Sankovich’s blog, www.readallday.org, and browse her choices and reviews there. (Mostly fiction, with a decidedly literary bent, though Twilight and a few other pop icons do make the list.)

And for a random dose of defiant bookworm spirit, here’s a storefront sign from Jackson Street Books in Athens, GA.

    I’m usually a bookworm, but lately I’ve had some life changes and haven’t found the time to read more than a chapter or two at a time. After reading this blog about Ms. Sankovich, I’ve decided to make time to read again. Reading is both relaxing and fun and can only make me more able to deal with the stress of real life.
