Book Empire Vol. 07

All the book news you need to know, on a need-to-know basis.

We understand how busy you are and how difficult it is to keep up with all the book news that’s being thrown at you every day. To make your life a little easier, we’ll compound the most important bits into 1 blog post every week, exactly telling you what you need to know. Please don’t worry your pretty little head about the possibility of propaganda or censorship. We’ll do that for you.

Do you like video games? Do you like books? Do you like weird stories from Kafka? Boy, do I have news for you!

Be honest, don’t you just buy your books online?

Tom Jokinen touches on something that is dear to us all, our Facebook feeds. He tells you who to read to make your updates more interesting and how we can blame Raymond Carver for all the Asperger’s Lit floating around.
No more dull status updates!

We are SUPER excited about the Tournament of Books and so are the writers at The Millions. For their annual cover stand-off between the U.S. and the U.K. they chose to use the books we will all be reading the next couple of months.
So take a look and let us know which covers you enjoy best!
