  • "Musician Josh Ritter recently released his debut novel Bright’s Passage. To promote the book, Ritter gathered a cast of Hollywood friends, family members and fans to read the first chapter of the novel. Follow the link to see the full twenty-minute video."

    The cast is intriguing — it includes Rainn Wilson and Mary Louise Parker — but I'm not going to watch a 20-minute book trailer. Twenty minutes??

  • "While searching for reviews of a book, it is tough to sort through all the mixed Amazon reviews, publisher sites and mainstream critics. The Book Blogs Search will help you explore the work of hundreds of literary critics online–excluding results from other sites."

    Cool idea.
