O Tempora! And Other News

  • If you’re not Pride and Prejudiced out, here’s a playlist. (We think it should end with “Chapel of Love,” but that’s a matter of opinion.)
  • Barnes & Noble will be downsizing, closing twenty stores a year for the next ten years. (Did you know they had that many stores?)
  • In related news, the Globe and Mail is, depressingly, slashing its books section. That’s right: “Slashing.”
  • At least the word puberty is no longer censored! Judy Blume on the bad times.
  • It would seem that Harry Potter, like the Bible, can be used to support any argument.

      Swear to god: after resisting the temptation for years, I finally got my green card last week. That is, my Barnes & Noble Member Card. Tell the truth I always preferred Borders. Better selection. Funny those smiling B & N customer service folks didn’t mention this before they nicked me for an annual fee.
