- Up to third of children and young adults in the UK believe at least one of their teachers is inhabited by an alien. (Via Sarah)
- Betsy reviews Rita Williams-Garcia's One Crazy Summer (so awesome!) and highly recommends it.
- And the Book Smugglers have a rave for N.K. Jemisin's The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms.
- Laura Miller weighs in on the e-book subject and the latest war with some intriguing thoughts about pricing, e-book readers and the like. Worth checking out. (By the way, as Scalzi points out, Macmillan authors' books are still being held hostage by Amazon, so offer them (and other authors!) your support by purchasing elsewhere.)
- Yet more fascinating research on team body and team brain.
- Colleen Lindsay hosts Rick Bowes' remembrance of the impact The Catcher in the Rye had on him, when a smart librarian let him check it out even though he was under the requisite 18 years of age. (This photo Ellen took of Rick and I apparently threatening to use our psychic powers on each other is my favorite from C and Andy's KGB reading.)
- Roger Ebert tells the story of "The Man Who Didn't Sleep."
- And another great piece over at the Quarterly Conversation about "Macedonio Fernandez: The Man Who Invented Borges."

Thanks for the link to the science article! I wonder if they will start making eBooks heavier to convert readers of more weighty books…
obviously, the children and teens of the UK have been watching entirely too much Doctor Who, Torchwood, & Sarah Jane.
Well, if you don’t remember the psychic showdown at KGB it’s one more indication of how complete was my victory. Just thinking about it makes me quack like a duck!
