Bookbits for March 4th, 2010

It’s far too pretty out to sit inside, but I promised myself to put some Bookbits up today, so here we go.  And then off to the garden for a spell!

  • Bloomsbury has (rightly!) given in and will rejacket the US edition of Magic Under Glass by Jaclyn Dolamore.  The story is about a brown-skinned girl with exotic features, but the cover shows a white girl.  They had to do the same with Justine Larbastier’s Liar last year.  Pretty crazy, don’t you think?
  • Aspiring writers, sit up! Here are tips from top writers.  I think Helen Dunmore’s first tip is ace!
  • The Most Amazing Libraries in the World, part One and Two, according to the Huffington Post.  I once considered attending a university simply because of the magnificent library in their brochure.  🙂
