A fantastic flying film I’m sure I wasn’t the only one cheering last week’s Academy Award winner for short animated film despite knowing nothing more than its title: The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore. Having now watched the film (available on YouTube), I can confirm that the content lives up to any expectations generated by the title. A++.
Your very own library If, upon watching the aforementioned Mr. Morris Lessmore, you’re feeling inspired to go out and share the power of books, consider creating a Little Library. These dollhouse-sized libraries started out two years ago on Todd Bol’s lawn, and they’ve been moving out into the world ever since. (And yes, there’s one in Toronto—304 Lee Avenue).
Oligopoly: such a fun word for something so crummy On “how the e-book garden is becoming a walled landscape.”
