Critical Linking for March 12th, 2014


Here are 20 of the world’s most stunning libraries, from a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the mountains of South Korea to the modern incarnation of the legendary library of Ancient Alexandria.

Normally, I hate linking to slideshows, but these twenty libraries are worth it.


Have you missed Lestat de Lioncourt? No? Well too bad. Anne Rice is writing another book about him. 

I guess vampires really do live forever.


A study finds more than half the books lining shelves in British homes have never been read.

Wow, that seems really high to me.
