Book News

A few interesting book links and news I found around the web this week:

A "Frog and Toad" discovery, from the Los Angeles Times. Was Frog and Toad are Friends one of your childhood favorites? It was one of mine and I was thrilled to hear this news.

The 2009 Man Booker Prize longlist is announced. Are there any of your favorites listed? Do you think you might read them now that they're nominated for this prestigious prize?

Alternatively, The Guardian has announced the Not the Booker Prize, a reader-nominated award whose prize is a coffee cup. Vote for your favorite.

Finally, Publisher's Weekly has what may be the first review of Vladimir Nabokov's posthumously published The Original of Laura, coming out in November.
