Extra, Extra! Read all about it!

Some exciting literary news has come to us via the New York Times. First, the NYT has released their "100 Notable Books of 2008" list, and we're happy to see so many short story collections included there, particularly in the top twenty. As many of you know, short story collections often don't get a fair shake as novels or memoirs do, so it's good to see that someone out there appreciates the short story. Check out the list here.

Second, Indiana University and the town of Bloomington--IR's home sweet home--are featured in this interesting and sometimes funny NYT article on book club culture and conflict. We never realized being in a book club could become so serious! Check it out.
