Around the Web

~ The stranger-than-fiction story of four teens who stole rare books in 2004 was obviously ripe for a Hollywood action-comedy.

~ Rule # 1 of book lending: dog-ear at your own risk. Electric Lit gives us a list of book-lending rules.

~ The case for the empowering princess story for women and femmes of colour has us royally fascinated.
