On other blogs:
–Alex Littlefield reveals Where the Wild Things Are author Maurice Sendak’s favorite-ever book title. (It’s not I Married Adventure. Nor is it My Wicked, Wicked Way or even Hullaballoo in the Guava Orchard.)
-There’s a new season of Old Jews Telling Jokes, which includes yuks from notables like Daniel Okrent (journalism avatar and founder of rotisserie baseball) and former NYC mayor Ed Koch. Would it kill you to take a look at it?
-Over on Steamboats Are Ruining Everything, Caleb Crain is selling all his blog posts–some of which could have been ripped from the pages of the New York Times Book Review or any of the other august places Caleb writes for–as either a PDF or a book. Has this been done before? As we say on the farm, How modren!
