The Google Print project comes under fire, story from the BBC.
A Personal Devil by Roberta Gellis: I am not sure where I picked this mystery up, but the main "detective" is a medieval English whoremistress named Magdalene. The story was surprisingly good and I liked the details of daily life. Good beach read and I will look for others in the series.
Eats, Shoots, and Leaves by Lynne Truss: This audio from the Reading Room is the original BBC series on punctuation and is quite entertaining and informative--here is a fun, online quiz based on the book. I'm probably the last person on earth to discover this but the title refers to a joke about a panda. The author was originally outraged and inspired by all of the misspelled signs in the world.
Some new history resources:
Time magazine names its picks for the 100 best films of all time. The Library of Congress has been naming 25 films a year since 1989 to the National Film Registry, to preserve those films deemed "culturally, historically, or esthetically important." Check out the impressive film collection in our library's Instructional Materials Center.
And...something called The Hollywood Librarian.
