Hello and Happy 2019!

Yesterday was Public Domain Day, the first time in a long while that several works were released into the public domain. Duke Law School’s Center for the Study of the Public Domain has all the details. 

Bestsellers often don’t stand the test of time, and classics often aren’t appreciated until much later. Lithub lists the biggest fiction bestsellers of the last hundred years, alongside the publication dates of some now-loved stories.

What countries have dominated U.S. news since 1900? The Pudding has created an interactive chart, using NY Times headlines. 

Also interactive, in its own weird way, is the Choose Your Own Band-Aid “Do They Know It’s Christmas” song! (I know the season is over, but this was too good to save until next December.)
