Two things.

It’s National Library Week! Hug a librarian this week! Or send her presents! I mean, if you know a librarian. Who might like presents. Or chocolate. I bet she likes chocolate.

And, 50 Books posted this interesting story about how Yann Martel (Canadian author of Life of Pi) has started sending books to the Canadian Prime Minster, Stephen Harper, each with a detailed letter. He’s doing this to protest funding being cut for the arts. You can find out more on Yann Martel’s site, What is Stephen Harper Reading?, where he’s going to post the PM’s response . . . if he gets one.
