Anyone have anything fun going on for July 4 weekend?  Don’t forget to invite me to your BBQs!

Speaking of travel… If I could travel back in time, I’d attend the literary party described in Lapham’s Quarterly.

Would you pay to attend a literary party or even just a reading?  The New York Times has an interesting article on the cost of events at indie bookstores.

Instead of bobbing for apples, try bobbing for olives at your next Greek party.

I’d love to hear from some crafty readers what they’d do with the pages torn out to make the lamp featured on Boing Boing.

It may be more lucrative to self-publish than to sign with a traditional publisher, according to this numbers-oriented article from Publishing Perspectives.
