Each week Miss Kathleen provides links to a variety of stories about libraries, authors, and books. If there’s something noteworthy going on in your local library, leave us a comment!

So, The Wire. Yes, we all love it, but anyone else notice its Victorian-literature leanings before? The drawings (okay, not Victorian) are the best part!

They left out quite a doozy, and one of my faves, but this is still a good list of the best closing lines to novels. I prefer to beat on, ceaselessly toward the past, myself...

Last week we saw some great LOTR cupcakes -- now, here's an amazing butterfly book cake! Tons of pictures to see, but the cake undecorated is my favorite. (Thanks, Kristin!)

Awesome new Tumblr alert: Share Your Shelf. What does your bookshelf say about you? Mine says: "You haven't bought a book since 2005." But I work in a library, so I don't have to buy books!
