This week on the bookish internet

  • A librarian offers instructions on how to figuratively and literally use books as weapons. (Librarian Shipwreck)
  • A woefully misinformed book challenger wrote in a letter to the American Library Association’s Office of Intellectual Freedom, asking the ALA to ban all Korans. The response is delicious. (ALA OIF)
  • Book Rioters share the lines from books that have stuck with them. (Book Riot)
  • In 1902, Wilbur Macey Stone published his very firm opinions on a topic that must have occupied absolutely zero of the minds of his generation: nude bookplates. (The Paris Review)
