Fuel for your reading binges.

Saturn V in KSC

  • Children’s – Mookology compares Brian Selznick’s The Invention of Hugo Cabaret with Martin Sorcese’s recent film adaptation, Hugo. My thoughts? Hugo was definitely a movie to be seen in theatres, in 3D. Beautiful!
  • Celebrity  – For the celebrity obsessed (like myself), here’s a slightly outdated list of celebrity bios you should read. For inside information and gossip on what actually happens in the Hollywood machine.
  • Non-Fiction  – I just visited the Kennedy Space Center on vacation and when I left…all I could think about were Russian astronauts. Their space program was bigger and better, yet so little has been written about it (that I could turn up). Anyways, Russia’s Cosmonauts: Inside the Yuri Gargain Training Centeis first on my non-American space reading list.

Book thoughts from around the web!

  • Mother’s Day – TwentySomethingReads has a ton of suggestions for Mother’s Day gifts. You know, if you need to pick something up last minute.
  • Children’s – Vulture has an extensive piece commemorating the life of Maurice Sendak, as well as a slideshow detailing the ways he impacted everyone’s childhood. R.I.P.
  • Historical – The Scruffy Rube reviews Erik Larson’s Devil in the White City , with an eye towards teaching it to students.
  • Young Adult – And in a major throwback to my youth, HelloGiggle’s presents Lies The Baby Sitter’s Club told me. All so true.
  • DIY – Need a new bookshelf? Instructions on how to make the television bookshelf featured above.
