After weeks of reruns and not-terribly-interesting content on the bookish internet, “This Week on the Bookish Internet” returns!
- A couple of Florida librarians gamed their automated weeding software to save books. (Boing Boing)
- The Annoyed Librarian provides a non-media perspective on this mishegoss. (Library Journal Blogs)
- Emma Nichols has some excellent advice about moving your book hoard. (Book Riot)
- Hannah Kingsley-Ma keeps a log of people who visit her bookstore. Madeleine Gobbo illustrated them. (LitHub)
- If Kingsley-Ma is to twee, here’s an antidote: a curmudgeonly Yorkshire bookseller who charges people to even enter the store. (The Guardian)
- Theresa Preston failed her Goodreads challenge and she’s okay with it. (Book Riot)
- Virginia legislators are attempting to pass a bill that requires that parents be notified of “sexually explicit” content in their kid’s books. (The Guardian)
