Also in Suggested Reading,

Jesse Tangen-Mills has some ideas for books to bring to the bar with you during the World Cup over at The Millions.

For the record, I don’t really understand bringing books to the bar (especially, if the thing you’re avoiding is a riveting international sporting event, rather than the occasional unwanted conversation), but if you must ….

I mean, not to get all Seinfeld on this, but people don’t bring booze to the library.

Suggested Reading

Largehearted Boy put together its 2010 list of blogs to read. We’re not on it, it’s OK we’re just working really hard to get back to a very competitive level in ’14.

Another Hitch-22 review

and perhaps the last I’ll link to here: a careful consideration of the memoir by Ian Buruma in the New York Review of Books.

Also, if you’re in New York and into this sort of thing:

Andy from Knife Fight and yours truly, will be DJ’ing a dance party at the loft above Public Assembly. It’ll be fun and it’s for a good cause. Details at Knife Fight.

This is probably poor blog etiquette,

but we’ve been getting a lot of hits on our Salinger posts lately, presumably because of this piece in the New Yorker: Ian Frazier visits the marginalia specialist at the New York Public Library and discovers that Nabokov has graded an anthology of New Yorker stories and given Salinger the only A+, besides the one he awarded himself.

Enjoy (there’s more to the article than what I ran down above). I just like that there’s a marginalia specialist at the NYPL.

A Love Craft

Mike Force gave us the heads-up on a Lovecraft inspired art show at the Observatory in Brooklyn. It closes tomorrow, so get their while supplies last.
