It's Wednesday afternoon, which means there's a lot out there to point out. Here's what we're excited about at the moment:
- Boing Boing has a post about this incredible bookstore now inhabiting an old church. It's bookstore porn, though, as one of the commenters laments, no wifi. Darn.
- I'm mentioning it again: The Millions will begin the Top 5 of its countdown of the best fiction of the young millennium tomorrow, with number 1 coming on Friday. In the meantime, post your own Top 5 in the comments of the post. If you're wondering what mine is, well, you'll have to wait a bit, as I was on the panel that helped decide, so mine will be featured on the site next week.
- McSweeney's has not abandoned its mission to save print, but it has released an iPhone app called The Small Chair. I downloaded it earlier today, and I'm pretty impressed. There's a lot to explore, which is a good thing, and the interface is pretty slick. We'll see how it works with the video content they've got coming soon (including a short film by Spike Jonze).
- And finally, vote for what you think is the greatest of all National Book Award winners. There are six nominated books.
