Read a banned book today! It’s Banned Books Week, and the books under fire for the last thirty years are wide-ranging.

The Internet Public Library is celebrating October with a linkfest of spooky sites (and some non-Halloween sites, too).

Did you know Dorian Gray was based on a real person? It’s true! Smithsonian Magazine has the story, along with other real-life people who inspired literary figures.

NPR has a fascinating “then and now” comparison of Civil War photographs. It’s amazing how little some places have changed.

I will always click on vintage library ads. “Man Overbored.” Hee.
