If I had a crazy amount of money and could do whatever I liked, I think I'd open a place like Libros Schmibros. It sounds great.

Also from the L.A. Times is an article on how libraries are reinventing themselves for the 21st century. (Yes, you've heard this before, but everyone's doing it differently.)

The San Jose Public Library has reinvented its website, which is gorgeous, and the Librarian in Black has some additional details from behind the scenes.

The end-of-year lists are already beginning; here's the list for the top words of 2010. (Vuvuzela!)

Did you know that fairy tales are barred from winning the National Book Award? I didn't.

Mark Twain wouldn't let his full autobiography see publication until 100 years after his death. That time is now, and there are some interesting additions to be found in the full story.
