There are constantly new blogs popping up all over the web. Some have themes, while others are just about a person’s daily life. How does someone come up with an idea for a blog, exactly? For Nathalie Boisard-Beudin, an in-house lawyer for the European Space Agency, it all started with a word.

Going on a book tour is an important part of advertising your work. Since April, Jessie Carty, founding editor of Folded Word, has been on tour with her poetry collection Paper House, which was released March 30, 2010.

I first came across the term “shortlisted” when I was casted in my University’s production of “The Pillowman” by Martin McDonagh.

Winston Smith Books, located in Auburn, CA, offers a wide selection of new and rare books.

I have corresponded with owner, James Van Eaton, for an interview. He is one busy man.
