Umberto Eco has died at age 84

In a terrible day for literature, Harper Lee is gone and now, so is Umberto Eco.

The Wicked + The Divine Playlist

Has anyone read or is reading The Wicked + The Divine by Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie? I recently read volume 1 and 2 and I really love it. It’s a comic series about gods and pop stars, which is right up my alley. A group of gods come to Earth every ninety years as pop stars, they last for two years and then they…

Librarians parody "Uptown Funk" with "Unread Book"

And I wanted to know what you had to say about it. But then the Charleston shootings happened, and suddenly everything I had to…

Hi bibliomancers: Introductions and Magic

Hi bibliomancers! What’s up? You can call me Candy, it’s not my real name, but it is my nickname. You can call me candycaines too, if you prefer. I’ve always been a big reader. I was the kind of kid that stayed up late with a flashlight and read books under the covers when I was supposed to be asleep. My mother was…
