Bookish Bites 04-27-09

1. New Regency has set to adapt the Josh Bazell novel, Beat the Reaper, into a screenplay. Guess who the potential star might be?

2. Smithsonian Magazine featured a piece by Steve Martin on how he got his act together and became a famous comedian.

3. In the month of Shakespeare's birthday and the 150th anniversary of Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities, NPR covers the literary cliche and its use and purpose. Can you spot all of the cliches?

4. Caitlin Phillips couldn't bear to throw away old novels- so she turned them into bags and purses.
