I have been pretty inactive on this blog lately, mostly because I have hardly been reading. However, I have done some web surfing and here are some of the things I found: An interesting article about the oldest libraries around the world . A literary guide to Paris . And London . An essay about book shame . One woman's (failed) quest to visit every book shop in New York city . Today's list: Books about friendships . These is no book I'd like to read today. I'm going through a reading slump and don't feel like reading.
