This week on the bookish internet

  • Barry Maxwell provides books for the homeless in Austin. (LitHub)
  • Scholars have been working on this ultimate dictionary of Latin since 1894! They’re currently working on N and R. (NPR)
  • John Mullan traces the rise and fall of the caché of plot driven novels, but leaves us with the burning question: why do they have such a bad rap these days? (The Guardian)
  • Jonathan Sturgeon wonders about words losing meaning due to overuse, but I think the problem here is people using words that they don’t actually know the meanings of. Check the dictionary before you use that $10 word, folks. (Flavorwire)
