Fresh Catch

Cover ImageHere are just a few quick links from this morning’s early surf…sorry about the re-directs but as they say, any port in a storm.

For those of you who love your sisters, try NPR’s piece on Laura and Lisa Ling’s book ‘Somewhere Inside’ on Fresh Air’s Ling Sisters Recount Laura’s Capture in North Korea.

For those of you who love Ireland try Roddy Doyle’s Man of Ireland at the End of the Road which discusses Doyle’s new book, The Dead Republic. Doyle can also be found in this week’s The New Yorker with his fiction feature, Ash.

For those of you who love Isabel Allende.

For those who love pacifists, try this brief pice on HuffPost:  ‘Weapons of Mass Instruction’.

For those of you who love free books and own an e-reader, try this piece in today’s New York Times:  Summer Reading, Electronic and Free.

For those of you who love Sesame Street, link to Sesame Street eBooks. Say what!?!

For those purists who love tradition, try this piece:  Last Typist Refuses to Switch to Laptop… Poor Skye. I love the idea, but even the big cover charge can’t cover all that clacking…

*Support your local bookstores, libraries, and universities. It matters.
