Okay, most of this Clip Show isn’t news, per se, but there are some fun sites/sights to be seen!
First up, we have the Continuing Adventures of How the Kindle Isn’t Like A Book: David Pogue takes a look at how page numbers are proving a difficulty for devices where there are no pages and you can adjust font size ad infinitum removing any kind of standardization within even Kindle versions of any given text/”book.”
Secondly, check out Bookshelf Porn for vicarious bookshelf appreciation and all kinds of bibliogasms. (Bookgasms? Basically you’ll swoon, is all I’m trying to convey.)
Thirdly, Borders filed for bankruptcy?! I did not see this coming after all these years of people saying Borders and Barnes & Noble were doing in indie booksellers. What now?
Fourthly, what will happen to marginalia in the digital age?! Frankly, something I hadn’t even thought to fret about, but now will surely do so. Thanks, New York Times.
And lastly a little piece of procrastination Wikisurfing for you: check out this Wikipedia page (please hold your groans) that identifies the literary source material for every animated Disney film (at least those that have something, so nothing really for The Emperor’s New Groove). Also, apparently J.D. Salinger really liked Whoppers. The truth finally comes out!
