I find this headline hilarious, but applaud anything that means more people are reading. These are lovely and at least they have something to do with the actual contents of the books and are not this because I mean C’MON. YAY READING.
I’ve actually never read anything by the Brontës, I should fix that. I like this edition of Jane Eyre.

These covers are a lot prettier than those heinous Twilight-based covers they gave P&P, Wuthering Heights, and Jane Eyre a few days ago. Black with bright red flowers and whatever.

Why Should Books Still Be Books When They’re on Tablets?

For all the disruption in the publishing industry wrought by the Internet, e-readers, and tablets, reading a book still feels like, well, reading a book: tabbing through pages, digesting information linearly. But maybe that will change. The company Semi-Linear is hoping so: Its recently unveiled Citia iPad apps reinvents long-form non-fiction for the tablet, turning books into something that resembles less a sequence of chapters and more a digital spread of sharable, customizable, collectible cards.

Very interesting concept.

Still love this display. Still can’t beat that logic.

Syllogisms are among the most solid forms of deductive reasoning, so yeah - it’s gotta be true.

What my kids remind me, every evening, is that books are not always parboiled eggplant or overcooked asparagus; they’re not giant horse pills stuffed with mental-multivitamin-dust meant to be choked down before dessert.

Some books are roasted lobsters soaked with butter; some are molten tubs of dark chocolate; some are luminescent piles of narcotics.
