In memory of David Foster Wallace, Harper's has put several essays of his online for free.

Things are getting back to normal here, but not in Houston. Wow.

On the bright side, however, the Hadron Collider hasn't destroyed us yet. Or has it? Now you can find out instantly!

Yet another reason to celebrate libraries: you never know when you might discover an overlooked work by, say, Mozart. (Thanks, Cassandra!) Also, your library card might get you discounts at local stores!

Among the wealthy, libraries are still in long as they're fashionable, at any rate. If bookstores are more your thing, you can now search for specialty stores as well as bigger chains by zip code.

The Pimp My Bookcart contest has begun, and now you can see the entrants as they arrive!

And finally, don't forget the Truth-O-Meter, which continues to track allegations and claims throughout the campaign season. It saves us librarians a lot of time.

Tomorrow: links from others!
