Evangeline Denmark's curator insight, March 21, 2014 12:23 PM

I'd argue that the lack of a stand out bestseller gives young adult readers the opportunity to explore other books in the genre. I don't think the category in books or in movies is going anywhere any time soon.

How well do you know your Jane Austen?  Click here to view original web page at www.theguardian.com Sara’s take: I did pretty good. Nine out of ten, but the survey finished with an Austen quote, saying “none of my answers have much to recommend them.” That will keep me from getting the big head! :)

Little-Known Punctuation Marks for National Punctuation Day via @mental_floss (Link via John Hoffman)  | All Things Bookish: All about books, all the time | Scoop.it
Because sometimes periods, commas, colons, semi-colons, dashes, hyphens, apostrophes, question marks, exclamation points, quotation marks, brackets, parentheses, braces, and ellipses won't do.
Sara Rosett's insight:
The sarcasm mark--we need it.
