Friday Round Up

Super quick round-up time, with Laura from Combreviations:

This was a week of learning, dudes and dudettes. We learned all about Angelina Jolie from the Morton bio, and will soon learn about Justin Bieber from his memoir, as well as Fidel Castro, also a memoir writer. We learned a drinking game for readers, and got our pre-college on with a reading list. We also found out these 20 classics of gay literature and the 10 best dressed characters in literature. We learned that a lot goes into a novella, and that, hey, chick lit is up for debate. We can also learn for the future, by listening to the Karma Sutra on audio. Sexy.

But knowledge requires a system of morality, to inform our judgments. Is a paywall for media morally necessary? Should sex disappear from the British novel? Is it okay to hate on Kindle users? At least we can rely on Superman to always save the day.

That's it for today, ladies and gents. See you next week here, or all week at Combreviations. And I, like you all, can't wait for the fall, when things actually start to happen again and round-ups are more than a paragraph. Until later!
