Final Friday Five

  1. James Patterson is giving away his money to local bookstores, including Odyssey Bookshop in Hadley, MA.
  2. Is Amazon bad for books?
  3. Even though I have an iPhone and all the fancy apps I could want, I still carry a notebook and pen with me everywhere I go. Long live note-taking!
  4. Daniel Bosch, former director of creative writing at my Alma Mater, Walnut Hill, posted his cover letter for a job to reform a creative writing department.
  5. A university in Chengdu, China is the new home to Gene Smith’s library of Tibetan tomes. I wish I’d known sooner so I could have visited the collection during my recent visit to Sarah Ruth Offhaus (aka asiamericana), my dear friend and Peace Corps volunteer posted just outside Chengdu.
