The Book Booth is a weekly feature at The Political Carnival, relating news, notes, and reflections from the world of books and publishing.  It is written by @SeattleDan and SeattleTammy, operators of an on-line bookstore (which you can find here) , who have been in the book business since shortly after the Creation, or close to 6000 years now.

The Book Booth: The Bard Edition

Today, Saturday, is the 400th anniversary of the passing of the Bard in 1616. And it was possibly his birthday as well, making him 52 when he left this mortal coil. He left us with his plays, poetry and introduced as many as 1700 words into the language. Not too shabby!

At Signature, 25 authors, including Margaret Atwood, Lee Child and others were asked about Big Bill and here are there responses. He still retains quite a fan club.
So What Do You Think About This Guy Shakespeare's Work?

In honor of his birthday, Rosie Schaap at the New York Times has created a new punch to celebrate the day, and it looks to be quite tasty.
Yum! A Shakespeare Punch! Raise a Glass!

Miguel Cervantes was a contemporary of Shakespeare's and it may be that they both died on the same day. But there may be more connection between the two writers than that possible coincidence. David Kipen explores that bond here for the LA Times.
Will and Miguel

I suppose many of the lines Shakespeare wrote could be proclaimed on stage and not necessarily shouted. However there are some lines that Electric Literature suggests should be shouted. Loudly.
To Shout or Not to Shout?

If you don't feel like yelling, you can still throw out some quotes from the writers of the "absurd", if you don't mind being thought as another psychotic wandering the streets. Or as Beckett said, I can't go on, I will go on.
Unleash Your Inner Psychotic With These Absurdist Quotes

Like other states in the deep south, Mississippi recently passed legislation that allows for discrimination against the LGBT community there, based on some quaint notion of religious liberty. But we should not take the bigotry as symptomatic of everyone who lives in that great state. A number of writers there have taken a stand against the law, and good on them!

The Pulitzer Prizes were announced this week and you can see the list of winners here. I admit that I am not familiar with the fiction winner, The Sympathizer by Viet Thanh Nguyen, but from what I've subsequently seen, I need to take a look at it.

I know that Spring is only a month old at this point, but we've been teased by summer like weather here this week, which puts me into the mood. And it looks like there will be a lot of good books arriving soon, including new works from Russell Banks, Don DeLillo, Annie Proulx as well as Richard Russo who has written a sequel to his very fine novel Nobody's Fool, called Everybody's Fool. Publishers Weekly has its summer recommends here.
Good Books Arriving In Time For The Summer

I have to admit that when it comes to genre writing, I am not much for romance novels. However, Lucian noticed that a pair of sisters has opened a bookstore devoted to romances called the The Ripped Bodice and I have to admire their ambition. Much good luck to them.
This Bookstore Carries Every Romance You Would Ever Want to Read!

I have a new hero. Abdel Kader Haidara is a book collector and librarian in Mali who managed to save many, many old manuscripts and books in his hometown of Timbuktu when it was occupied by an extreme Islamist group. The Wall Street Journal has the story here.

To all of you, a fine weekend filled with books and reading. And hoist one, or two in remembrance of the Bard of Avon. And by all means let us know what books you are enjoying.

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: Fourth of July Edition

A Happy Fourth of July, dear readers. It's a great day to celebrate with fireworks and BBQs and all that. But it's also a good day to reflect that this nation was conceived on the concept that all men are created equal. And our history is the long road to try to achieve something like that.

Do you remember the Little Golden Books. In my early youth, my mother kept me well supplied, though I'm sure she got sick unto death of constantly reading me The Saggy, Baggy Elephant, surely a classic. MentalFloss has the history of these gems here.
Little Golden Elephant Books

Writers can find inspiration in many places. Recently author Stephen Jarvis, who's novel Death and Mr. Pickwick, shared the story behind the novel, which draws its story from the Dickens novel. And Brian Ferry. And other musicians. Ideas can seem to come from anywhere.
Where Do Ideas Come From?

We learned not too long ago that the Starz network has picked up Neil Gaiman's American Gods for a mini-series. Even better news for Gaiman fans is that the author will also be writing some of the episodes. Apparently he has written teleplays in the past for Dr. Who and Babylon 5, so he is no stranger to adaptation.

Have some time on your hands this weekend? Then take the challenge! Can you guess the 100 most commonly used words in English? And do it in twelve minutes? You can give a try here.
How's Your Vocabulary?

Or you could spend your time more wisely by finding some new writers to read. The folks at Quartz have these recommendations of young Latin American writers who would be worth perusing. H/T to old friend George Carroll for the link.

Then there are those who use their time in more frivolous ways. Like F. Scott Fitzgerald, who conjugated the verb to cocktail for Blanche Knopf. And thanks to another pal, Diane Frederick, for sharing.

Far from frivolous, these teachers at a middle school in Biloxi, Mississippi know how to spend their days off this summer. Take a look at how they transformed the hallway in one of the school buildings.

Ken Bruen is no stranger to the noir novel. He has written many himself, featuring Jack Taylor. His latest novel is Green Hell. Here he lists his rather idiosyncratic top ten noir novels. Many of these, I don't know, but David Goodis was one heckuva writer and not read enough these days.
Top 10 Noir Novels (per David Goodis)

Many years ago, after having left her job as a sales rep for Penguin Books, Seattle Tammy was at loose ends. One day she received a phone call from the owner of Seattle Mystery Bookshop, Bill Farley, asking her if she wouldn't want to work the odd day and some hours at the shop located in Seattle's Pioneer Square. Tammy agreed and over the years, she eventually became the manager of the store. Bill was her mentor and her friend over these past years. Earlier this week, Bill passed away at age 83. We will miss him and thank him for his many generosities and friendship.
