Links in no particular order of social significance

Bottom Shelf Books, a site that looks at “picture books from a somewhat grown-up perspective,” has a really amusing two-part interview up with the characters from Punk Farm by Jarrett J. Krosoczka.

Chronicle Books has a blog, and I know I’m probably the last to hear about it, but I thought I’d pass the information along to the rest of you. Go over and see pictures of their new offices, get recipes from upcoming cookbooks, and giggle at their customer letters.

This is old news from July 30th, but it bears rereading: Jean Marie Pierson talks “Getting Published: Insights from a Book Contracts Insider.”

If you didn’t make it to ComicCon you can read, watch and hear all about it from this collection of bloggers, podcasters, videos and message boards.

Bookselling This Week talks book displays with the good people of BookPeople.

Oh, Amazon rankings, it appears like any system you can be manipulated. Not surprisingly you were spoken over and over again at DPI as a way to gage interest in a book after a big interview or article has hit the public.

Chick Lit Review has their new online issue out.

The Man Booker Longlist is out too.

And proof the Oregon Trail game continues to live on in people’s hearts and minds.
