Book News, In Brief

Naomi Wolf embraces today's technology, declares YouTube > books!

Semi related (in that it's about the internet's effects on traditional reading habits), The Millions book blog asks, Who's Afraid of the Big, Bad Screen?

Even less related (although it does use the words 'big' and 'bad'), The Big Bad Book Blog has a couple of tips for authors facing those dreaded new year's returns.

Not at all related (but believe me, I tried) is GalleyCat's piece on Hollywood screenwriters slumming it in the kids' lit world. Now after wasting an evening suffering through a sh*tty CGI flick with your kids, you can look forward to reading them an equally sh*tty bedtime story written by those same Tinseltown auteurs!
