Friday Open Thread: December 13th, 2013

It’s Friday afternoon. Let’s chat!

Jason Segel was cast to play David Foster Wallace in an upcoming movie, and I don’t know what to think about that. I’ve only read some of his essay collections, and I don’t know nearly enough about the man himself to have much of an opinion. The internet seems split. What’s your take?

Also, Toni Morrison and Junot Diaz hung out together last night at the New York Public Library, and it’s pretty rad. Start the video at the 40-minute mark.

What’s on your bookish mind today?

Put a book in your ears. We recommend The Fire Next Time by James Baldwin. Get it or one of 250,000 other audiobooks free when you begin an Audible 30-day trial. audible_scifi_570x147
