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:

The Kindle’s going on a diet this summer. Amazon is supposedly rolling out a thinner version in August. [CNET]

In case my brief round-up wasn’t extensive enough, the Los Angeles Times sums up BookExpo America. [LA Times]

Will an investment of $25 million help the seriously struggling Borders? [GalleyCat]

Way back when Mark Twain wrote an autobiography he didn’t want released until 100 years after his death. Well, 100 years is up. [The Independent]

Who needs a portrait of their kids when you can have a portrait of your bookshelf. [Jane Mount via Baby Got Books]
