It is Monday once again, and so we give you news of literature and art!

J.K. Rowling's Pottermore website is going to be really interesting, not only for Potter fans (extra writings!) but also as a possible trend for ebook distribution.

McSweeneys takes on famous opening lines from novels and "updates" them. I like Alice's the best.

Sometimes the headline says it all: "Painting thought to be Vincent van Gogh self-portrait is actually of his brother Theo." (To be fair, they look a lot alike.)

The National Library of Ireland is now part of the Flickr Commons, and has some wonderful images up already.

And lastly, if you are in the market for nursery d├ęcor, why not start your child early on learning Elvish? It may come in handy one day!
