I Know I Shouldn’t Buy More Books But I Just Can’t Stop: A Novel
A 9-year-old Kansas boy is fighting for his right to operate a tiny library from his front yard after city officials deemed it an illegal structure. Spencer Collins built his “Little Free Library” — one of 15,000 “take a book, lea…
What a petty-minded thing to do…

The interview is really, really long, lasts for about an hour. Oh, and there’s another, newer (and shorter) one here.

(I used to read dozens of books every year, but in 2011 I haven’t read more than 40. Shameful. I want to try finish as much books as I can til the end of this year)
Really? I like it. And I have no problems with people asking me what I’m reading - it’s good that someone’s interested in books.
I hate it too. Because they’re not really interested they’re just making small talk, and it’s like, “You interrupted someone who’s obviously reading, just to make small talk?”

I wish comics paperbacks were printed in a slightly smaller format - it’s damn difficult to read, let’s say, “X-Men: Supernovas” on the bus XD
