Random Cool Book Things from Around the Internet

Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket) is interviewed about his latest book, Why We Broke Up, on Goodreads. He and illustrator Maira Kalman visit Vroman’s on January 30th.

Awesome booksellers at Type Books in Canada created this beautiful video by painstakingly moving books all over their store. It’s called Joy of Books, and they couldn’t have picked a better title.

You can now read Google eBooks (the eBooks that Vroman’s sells) on your Kindle Fire. It takes a bit of hacking, but just read Girl with the Dragon Tattoo first and you’ll be all set. Changing Hands has a great guide.
