Our daily round-up of bookish links. Tastes great with coffee.


“I want to be in a Christmas Gap ad with Zadie Smith.”

Mindy Kaling on the writers she reads.


“The momentum of the animations hasn’t been calculated right, so the whole thing feels ornery.”

Just want you want your technology to feel like, “ornery.”


“Princeton Professor and Pulitzer-Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon critiques Ke$ha’s ‘Tik Tok.'”

Now this is what I am talking about.


“Crime writer Lindsay Ashford bases claim on reading of author’s letters and claims murder cannot be ruled out.”

Hmmmm. I can’t rule out that this is pretty silly.
