Tiny Books, Wuthering Napa

September 28, 2012 | by

  • Behold! The world’s smallest book! Teeny Ted from Tunip Town was etched on a microchip with an ion beam and can only be read via scanning electron microscope.
  • Presented without comment: “This time, we’ll be finding the dapper but doomed lovebirds, Heathcliff and Catherine (or will it be Heath and Kate?) in modern day Napa Valley. Greg Berlanti, the creator and writer of Everwood, Jack & Bobby, and Arrow, and Tom Donaghy of The Whole Truth are developing a pilot for the hour-long drama, currently titled Napa.”
  • Barnes & Noble goes … paperless?
  • The reviews for J. K. Rowling are in, and they’re … tepid. Except when they’re not. Except when the reviewer hasn’t actually read the book.
  • "A Chicago high school guidance counselor and former girls’ basketball coach filed a lawsuit against his school district for firing him after the release of his graphic book on relationship advice. He claims that his First Amendment rights have been violated and is seeking $1 million from the district.” Enough said, really.

      The guidance counselor, Bryan Craig, actually worked at Rich Central High School, which is in Olympia Fields. Olympia Fields is to Chicago the same way that Long Island is to The Bronx. I doubt that the counselor would have been reprimanded if he actually worked in Chicago proper.

      I wonder if Bryan is more upset about being fired or the fact that the media isn’t including the title of his book in their reports.
