About

I live in New York City and I'm surrounded by books all day and when I go home I have more books waiting for me. Read my "About" page on top to see what I mean. I just want to share my book experiences and my love of all-things-books, with hopefully the occasional review thrown in. If you wish to contact me, the address is polishoutlanderATgmailDOTcom

Some Video Goodness

So I came upon some of these videos and just wanted to share them. So enjoy the literary/muppet goodness.

Interestingly enough, the translation for the title of this video is wrong. It’s not “Bombing of Poems over Warsaw.” The actual translation is “Rain of Poems–Warsaw.”

Announcing the “90-Second Newbery” Video Contest! The challenge: make a video that compresses the story of a Newbery award-winning book into 90 seconds or less. Anyone can enter. Here is the first video: Madeleine L’Engle’s 1963 Newbery winner, A Wrinkle in Time! We’re planning a star-studded 90-Second Newbery Film Festival at the New York Public Library in Fall of 2011.

OK Go have a run in with Animal from the Muppets at the Webby awards.

First we had the computer beating Kasparov at Chess. Now we have Watson, playing against the two best Jeopardy players. I am super-excited for this, but sadly it airs right when I have class. The showdown is on February 14-16th.

I posted this ages ago, but it started to make the rounds again especially with the phenomenal sales of e-readers and e-books….Long live the printed page! Huzzah!

For all you steampunk lovers out there, one of my authors posted this on her Facebook yesterday. I immediately sent the link to Josh with the words “I want!” Since my birthday is coming up….hint hint. ::drool::
