Friday! Let’s hit it!

Handling rare books? No cotton gloves please! Via The New York Times.

There’s almost too much book banning news to cover. This New Yorker piece looks at how banning books isn’t protecting children (and yes I read a lot of books on the most banned list as a child and teenager, usually in class because my school taught them for the same reasons other folks want to ban them. Glad they did!)

Like Terry Pratchett? Twenty of his early stories are set to be republished this year.

HarperCollins and Hachette are offering voluntary service packages, per Publisher’s Weekly. Sigh.

Do you read more than one book at once? I try to only be reading one book and listening to one book at a time. Tor takes on the topic.

And in a bit of self-serving news, my new ebook, Freelancing for Laid Off Journalists (and Those Who Want to Quit) is almost live! I’ll be announcing its release here.
