We're starting a new, weekendly blog post called This Week in Links. During the course of the work-a-day week we're bogged down with publishing industry news, most of which is uninteresting. However, every so often we stumble upon some news that is cool/amusing and we'd like to share. We'll try to keep them book-specific (otherwise you'd be getting weekly updates on Dan Savage's Google-bomb on Rick Santorum, which I find frankly hilarious).
Call Heather Christle and she'll read you a poem from her new collection The Trees The Trees: link.

California is forcing Amazon and other online retailers to start collecting retail tax: link.
Still interesting stories from last week:
