This week on the bookish internet

  • Whenever people ask why we still have Banned Books Week, I point to stories like this one from Virginia, where To Kill a Mockingbird and Huckleberry Finn were pulled from a school. (CBS Baltimore)
  • Dwyer Murphy reports on the dusty criminal underworld of rare book theft. (LitHub)
  • Emily Wenstrom clues readers in to some of the lesser known genres: the “punks.” (Book Riot)
  • All of the British authors complaining that Americans are eligible for the Man Booker just sounds like so much sour grapes. (The Guardian)
  • And speaking of literary prizes, the annual Bad Sex in Fiction award has been announced. (The Guardian)
