The Book Booth: Lazy Crazy Hazy Days of Summer Edition

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

BookBoothHemingwayGreenHillsAfricaw296h220
From: BostonHerald/Associated Press

The Book Booth is a weekly feature at The Political Carnival, relating news, notes, and reflections from the world of books and publishing. @SeattleDan, along with his wife, SeattleTammy, are operators of both an on-line bookstore here, as well as a brick and mortar storefront mini-store in Hoquiam, WA at 706 Simpson Ave (Route 101 South). Both have been in the book business since shortly after the Creation, or close to 6000 years now.

The Book Booth: Lazy, Crazy, Hazy Days of Summer Edition

The days are sunshiny, bright and warm, but not too hot, here in my little town. There's a gentle breeze outside the window, brushing the magnolia leaves against the window. Damn, I gotta get out there and prune that thing!

It's been a great summer for reading. There is nothing like sitting back with a cool drink and leafing the pages of a book while lounging in a comfortable setting. And the folks at the LiteracySite remind us why we both enjoy and need that time.
Why We Enjoy Reading

With the publication of Harper Lee's Go Set a Watchman, the New Republic wondered what other works by famous authors have gone unpublished while sitting in some desk drawer. To me, it seems that some of these works probably deserve the obscurity that the authors wanted for these tomes. Others look interesting.
Unpublished Works by Famous Authors

For myself, I remain wary of reading Watchman. For all the reasons Maureen Corrigan explains over at NPR. Some things I just don't want to know about Atticus. H/T to Lucian for sending me this link.
Should You Read Watchman?

With the recent controversy over the Confederate flag andthe arguments over "heritage" to conceal racism, I have been thinking about the American Civil War, now 150 years finished. So I am excited to learn of this new graphic novel, Battle Lines, a collaboration between historian Ari Kelman and graphic artist Jonathan Fetter-Vorm. I've placed a hold on it at the library, and I'll let you know if it is good.
A Graphic Novel About the Civil War

Some good news from the war on censorship. A federal judge has blocked an Arizona law that banned nude photos in books, papers and other media. The law's original intent was to stop "revenge" porn, but it really extended basically to anything "nude". The American Booksellers Association has the full story here.
Arizona Censorship Law Struck Down

Part of my development as a young reader was the adventures of Frank and Joe Hardy (as well as Tom Swift and the Tarzan series), something for which I readily admit. No, I didn't read classics at age 10. But I may never have read literature at all without the Hardy Boys. Here MentalFloss explores some facts many people don't know about those intrepid young sleuths.
Who Were The Hardy Boys?

By my teens, I was reading the American masters of modernism, though, including Steinbeck, Fitzgerald and Hemingway. But I never did get around to Hemingway's Green Hills of Africa (or Death in the Afternoon). The book is being reissued with some additional material from his family and it looks to be a more interesting work.
Green Hills of Africa Reissued (with additional material)

Earlier in the Spring, I discussed the Hugo Award Kerfuffle. (You can see that post here: Hugo Award Controversy.

Voting for the Hugo Awards is still going on and Game of Thrones author George RR Martin is encouraging folks to vote, no matter what. More On The HA Controversy

Author E.L. Doctorow passed away this week at age 84. My favorite two novels of his were Book of Daniel, a novel about the children of two executed cold war spies, and the brilliant Ragtime. If you've never read him, go check some of his work out. Doctorow

Somehow the folks at Buzzfeed snuck into my house and found that every available surface space is covered by books. At least they didn't get a shot of the mountain of books that are on SeattleTammy's bed table that looks to be a catastrophe in the making.
Secret Lives of Booklovers Revealed.

To all of you, a splendid summer weekend, filled with books and reading. We'll see you next week and please do let us know what books you are enjoying
