Book Adventures Weekly, Issue 40

The big 4-0! Welcome to the new week, and here is your bookish news round-up:

As a lifelong learner, I dabble in online education (aka MOOCs). A year ago, I completed a course and printed out my unofficial Statement of Accomplishment, to prove (unofficially) that I had taken and passed the course. Coursera is no longer offering free, unofficial certification. (I haven’t found it on EdX, either).

More medieval manuscripts are online! University of Leiden has digitized 80,000 pages.

Did you pledge to Read Harder? There are book groups in a handful of cities meeting this month.

Still want great books but don’t want to support Amazon? Try these alternative resources from Book Riot.

So this is interesting. Bill Gates’ Must-Read list.

Particularly relevant to this blog, where one of its authors is American and the other Canadian: how reading habits in the USA and Canada¬†compare. (It’s from a Canadian source, don’t forget to take that into account…)

Have great adventures this week!
