Except, not entirely from this week: I cleaned out my instapaper folders and found some interesting articles that I missed in my semi-weekly round-ups.
- Thom Dunn reports on an appalling pro-censorship law proposed in the Oklahoma legislature that could result in librarian firings and fines for schools if parents find objectionable books in the shelves. (Boing Boing)
- Jeffrey Davies has advice for recovering English majors (and others) who want to be able to read for fun again. (Book Riot)
- I found a nifty tool that might help you if you’re looking for something to read that’s a little bit one genre and a little bit another. (Blender)
- Elizabeth Heritage examines a book that has been a punchline almost since it took the bookish world by storm in 1794: The Mysteries of Udolpho. (Tor Blog)
- Katie Yee writes in praise of Stranger then Fiction, a bookish movie that’s one of my all-time favorites. (LitHub)
- Robert Rubsam likes marking up his books and wants the rest of us to start scribbling in the margins, too. (New York Times)
- Gia R. reflects on all the reasons we want to share books with each other. (Book Riot)
