  • A New Mexico woman was jailed for failing to return a copy of Twilight to the library. (Charges have since been dropped.)
  • An Argentinian independent publisher Eterna Cadencia adds an element of urgency to reading, by publishing books in disappearing ink.
  • A lawyer requests time off from a murder trial to attend the famed Key West Hemingway Lookalike Contest. And is denied.
  • A handy chart helps you choose your beach read.
