OK, let’s get to it this week.
Here are 3 crime fiction links, 2 quotes, and 1 question for this week:
- Really liked that Stasio’s NYTs best crime novels of ’20 list goes beyond the traditional big names, big books. You’ll find something new here to read.
- CrimeReads examines the back catalog of David Fincher and his obsession with noir. I need to re-watch PANIC ROOM.
- An interesting look at US library borrowing data from the middle of this year. What are people really reading during the summer of the pandemic?
Two quotes about libraries this week:
“You want weapons? We are in a library! The best weapons in the world!” – Dr Who
“A library is not a luxury but one of the necessities of life.” – Henry Ward Beecher
- What is your favorite book that involves a library or bookshop? The Eyre Affair and Mr Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore come to mind for me.
Until next Thursday, happy reading,
