It's the literary equivalent to the neighborhood lemonade stand - Little Free Library will sell you (or show you how to build) a small post-mounted honor library that you can set up in your front yard and share works with your neighbors. Very very cool.

The story is by Philip K. Dick, the legendary flipped-out weirdo and science fiction author whose books have been endlessly adapted into films. Everyone knows Blade Runner, based on his novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? What most people don't know is that the late Philip K. Dick has been reincarnated. As an android.

I was in a supermarket recently searching for a brown mustard-and-conditioner in one. It was while I was reading the ingredient label on a jar of Gouldens Dry Scalp Formula that I looked to the children's book rack and there spied the title "My Little Golden Book About God." For the safety of our race (if any still remain) I have translated this book in the hopes that a resistance may arise. Read the baby powder-scented Final Solution of our enemies from beyond, otherwise known as: My Little Golden Book About Zogg.
There are lots of ways to mark the passage of time, but none as unusual as seeing what common household objects find their way up a person's innards.

That's what Susan Andersen's novel Baby, I'm Yours was supposed to say. Thanks to a typo, it says something subtly yet drastically different.
The Republic high school in Missouri recently banned a couple of books, one of which was Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut. The Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library responds by giving a free copy to any Republic student who asks.

Shed's a struggling author - he poured his heart and soul into an autobiographical self-help book for 5 years, then spent another 2 years getting it published... and it tanked.
Now, he's finally cracked Amazon's top lists with his latest book. This is noteworthy because his latest book is totally blank.

Seven thousand copies of a cookbook called the Pasta Bible have had to be destroyed because one of its recipes recommended adding 'salt and freshly ground black people'.
Naturally, the publisher is claiming it's a typo. Riiiight.

You'd think the authors of classic literature would be a humble, respectful bunch regarding their peers, but no - truth of the matter is, most were just catty dickweeds that loved to talk shit about each other.
The flip-top cigarette pack is one of the most successful pieces of packaging design in history. TankBooks pay homage to this iconic form by employing it in the service of great literature. We have launched a series of books designed to mimic cigarette packs - the same size, packaged in flip-top cartons with silver foil wrapping and sealed in cellophane.
The storied history of the paperback book in American culture starts with a single goal: to make reading materials available to travelers for the cost of a pack of smokes.
