Linked Up: Paging Through The Internet

My mom loved thinking about and talking about reading almost as much as she loved the actual act of reading.

In her absence, I’ve turned to the giant reading conversation that is the World Wide Web. Here’s what the Internet is saying about books, authors and the publishing industry this week:

Seems like fashion designer Marc Jacobs is getting into the bookstore business. [Racked]

George Washington owes over $300,000 in overdue fees to the New York Society Library for failing to return two books. [Gothamist]

Speaking of presidents, the Washington Post asks authors how they feel when the head of the United States of America reads their books. [Washington Post]

Forbes ranks the richest fictional characters and, yes, Chuck Bass is on there. [Forbes]

Entertainment Weekly has fast-forwarded a couple months to give us the books they are most excited about for the summer. Pass the Stieg Larsson! [Entertainment Weekly]
