- Book Expo America (BEA) is going on right now in New York. To learn more about it or find out what's hot and happening, check out Wikipedia, the official Facebook page, the Huffington Post, or Twitter (#bea13 or @UnivNebPress).

In fact, I had a conversation with Richard Nash (Am I the only one who considers this name-dropping? I totally feel like I'm name-dropping.) at TOCCON a couple of years ago where we talked about how cool it would be to have a book recommendation engine based on your current location.
- The Judy Blume novel Tiger Eyes has been made into a movie. Who doesn't love Judy Blume? No one, that's who.
- The Cocktail Chart of Film & Literature (Anyone else getting a little thirsty?)
- This book looks gorgeous. Do I want the print version or the ebook?
