Book News, In Brief
(The 'Does This Blog Make My Ass Look Fat?' Edition)

Diet Girl author Shauna Reid lost nearly 200 blogging. CBS gets the skinny.

Over at Robot 6, comics auteur Carol Lay talks about her inspired and inspirational new book, The Big Skinny: How I Changed My Fattitude.

Tapping into the timeworn tradition of blaming everyone but ourselves, CBS points their pudgy finger at cookbooks, asking are cookbooks making us fatter?

Here's a diet that may or may not be easier to stick to, depending: The credit card diet. Hell, with the way things are going in the book industry right now, I'm more likely to develop one of those distended, Unicef-ish credit card bellies than anything resembling a cash-heavy gut.
