The 2011 Cybils Finalists | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

This was the year the Kindle caught Fire, the Nook fought for its niche, Borders went belly up and ebooks overtook their dead tree cousins for good. But for us here at Cybils, it was another year of reading, blogging and more reading.

Books We Loved Reading

Books We Loved Reading | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Best Books lists carry an air of assigned reading, but lists of favorites are about enjoyment. USA Today‘s book critics just listed the ten books they “loved reading in 2011.” Included are titles that haven’t appeared on the Best Books lists we tracked, like Jaycee Dugard’s memoir of being kidnapped and held captive for 18 years, A Stolen Life, which they describe as “a firsthand testament to the resilience of the human spirit” and P.D. James’ Austen-inspired Death Comes to Pemberley.

Les dix meilleures bandes dessinées en 2011 - Toujours plus en noblesse! | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Nouveautés à la pelle, incursion dans des univers futuristes torturés, dans des histoires de vie troublées, dans le milieu de la danse, du vin, des tensions géopolitiques, déconstruction des codes narratifs classiques... L'année 2011 a une fois de plus démontré l'effervescence, la richesse et la diversité du 9e art, qui ici gagne toujours plus en noblesse. Et si, pour aller plus loin, il ne fallait retenir que 10 titres sortis cette année...

Prose Adaptations. Yay? or Nay?

Prose Adaptations. Yay? or Nay? | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Just because a series is popular in prose does not mean you can slap together an adaptation into the graphic novel format with rushed art and lackluster attention to adapting dialog and have it succeed. I think many of those adaptations of popular series that have failed are simply poorly made graphic novels. Sometimes it’s the fault of a publisher pushing an adaptation too fast into production, and sometimes it just doesn’t gell in the graphic format.

Top Books of 2011 - TPL

Top Books of 2011 - TPL | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Instead of putting together a predictable list of our top literary picks for 2011, we decided we wanted to get a sense of the year’s best books from a Torontonian perspective. While we couldn’t actually poll every reader in the city, the hard-working folks at the Toronto Public Library were kind enough to provide us with a round-up of 2011’s hottest titles, according to their popularity among TPL users. Beside each title, we’ve also indicated where you’d be in line (as of Dec. 20) if you placed a hold on the title now.

Comment les bibliothèques peuvent-elles contribuer à enrayer cette désaffection pour la lecture chez les adolescents, telle est la question posée lors d’une journée d’étude organisée par l’école des loisirs le 17 octobre 2011 au théâtre du Vieux-Colombier, à Paris. Les actes de cette rencontre qui réunissait bibliothécaires, écrivains et éditeurs sont aujourd’hui mis à votre disposition par l’École des lettres en deux versions : papier et numérique.
