Okay, that was a scary list, so here's a fun one: 10 literary haunts in New York. I've been to three! How about you?

We all know New York has a great literary history, but what about other cities and towns? Well, Ploughshares is answering that very question in their series of Literary Boroughs. Does your town make the list?

Last but certainly not least, it's time for June's Blog of the Month! And how could I ignore one with a title like "F**k Yeah! Libraries"? I could not, of course! Thanks for posting awesome library stuff! Definitely worth a look.
