STATUS: I’ve seen the first beta page for our website redesign. I’m so excited!

What’s playing on the XM or iPod right now? MEXICAN RADIO By Wall Of Voodoo
(Just saw the sale for the tell-all by the original MTV VJs. I’m feeling nostalgic!)

Are you an author? Want to be a part of something terrific and spread the love of reading? Then you’ll want to know about World Book Night. NLA has signed up to be a book giver as have some of our authors! We are committed and then some.

Originally started in the UK last year, Carl Lennertz is now taking it on to make April 23 extraordinary in the US.

Find out more about it and how to sign up here. The deadline is Feb. 1, 2012.

    Love that Anna Quindlen is the honorary U.S. chairperson this year and is planning to give out copies of Tim O’Brien’s The Things They Carried. I’ll definitely participate!

    Hi Kristin,
    I stopped by your blog today to see if you would comment on the SOPA/PIPA debate. I always like reading you analysis of complicated subjects like this.

    Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research on this. We got a book from our local library but I think I learned more from this post. I am very glad to see such great information being shared freely out there…
