Wednesday links

Coming to me via Jacket Copy: books, books, and more books! First, there's Flickr's Bookshelf Project, wherein people publish photos of...you guessed it, bookshelves. Flickr also gives us Book Piles, which is not as interesting but still noteworthy. The best of them all, however, is this amazing staircase, which helps a cramped apartment display its books. WANT. WANT. WANT.

In other news, an online book program has recently been launched; the first episode features books by Charles Bock, Susan Choi, Colin Harrison, and Richard Price. View it here.

Like weird things? Click here to read some of the oddest book titles of the year. I'm partial to If You Want Closure in Your Relationship, Start With Your Legs. Nice!

If you like sci-fi, here's a couple good links for you. The first dicusses what your taste in sci-fi says about your outlook on the world. The second, although not about books per se, still piqued my interest, discussing as it does movie endings -- which would you change? I don't know enough about movies -- books are my bag, obviously -- but that makes me wonder, which bookish ending would you change? I'll be back with that post soon.

Of course the funny ones are from the UK. We Americans are way too uptight.

Ooh...thanks for the flickr bookshelf project. It's as good, if not better than the 'what's in your bag' pool.
