Book Adventures Weekly, Issue 9

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!

Eye candy for librarians, book lovers, readers, and travelers: The 50 Most Majestic Libraries from Architecture and Design.

Curious about which books were most popular in 2014? Publisher’s Weekly has charts. Lots of charts. The ones that are already winning this year can be found on the New York Times bestseller lists.

Also on NYT, reviews of Marcus Sedgewick’s The Ghosts of Heaven and The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black.

I have even more love for Obama after reading this story about how he sorted toys into girls’ and boys’ bins for the Marines’ Toys for Tots program.

Watch in real-time as British Library patrons return and request a wide array of titles.

 

 

And from the Department of Random, Wolf Conservation Division

The British Columbia government is set to permit hunting and killing of 180 wolves from helicopters in the next two months. Sign the petition to stop the hunt.

Bad news for wolves in Sweden: 10% (36) of the wolf population will be hunted and killed this winter.
