  • Because it is a truth universally acknowledged that every celebrity has a children’s book in him, Jim Carrey is penning How Roland Rolls, a metaphysical story about a wave.
  • French cultural minister Aurélie Filippetti says the government is creating a fund to help struggling independent bookstores to ensure that France “never suffers the same fate as the United States.” Fair enough, France.
  • We all know the stories of authors who abhor the crass Hollywood commercialization of their work. Here are some happier outcomes! (Susan Orlean’s approbation is especially generous, considering!)
  • Encouraging or dismaying? Books on bullying are big business. Or, in the Times’s somewhat unfortunate parlance, “hot and profitable.”
  • #Librariansasteenagers is a hash tag.

      You cannot overlook the power of books in our lives. This is why the University of Nigeria http://unn.edu.ng has committed a lot to increasing the holding of her library, Nnamdi Azikiwe Library in UNN. Visit the site for articles on different disciplines.
