Web Newberys (July 23)

Noteworthy book-related articles and news:

  • Olympic Christians:  Betsy at LiterariTea.blogspot.com reviews Zonderkidz kids’ books about Olympic athletes.  Get ’em while they’re hot!
  • New Christian ereader:  Do Christian stores need their own ereaders?  Family Christian Stores think so.  It remains to be seen whether consumers do.
  • The Dark Knight and Dickens:  Christopher Nolan and his brother say their latest film was influenced by A Tale of Two Cities.  I will admit, for sale I missed the allusions, but after reading this, you’ll be enlightened.
  • Encyclopedia Brown Author Dies:  Is it bad that I hated these books as a kid?  All the same, it’s a series worth noting, both influential and more conservative than a lot of other kids’ books.
  • Mexican Gang members Read Christian Books?  Apparently John Eldredge’s books have been found among Mexican drug cartel contraband.  Needless to say, he doesn’t agree with how they’re being applied, but it’s a pretty bizarre story nevertheless….
  • Wrinkle in Time:  Here’s a pretty thorough review of the book at Breakpoint Youth Reads, which is timely in light of the book’s extra publicity of late for its 50th anniversary.  (Here’s our own Janie Cheaney’s review, for comparison.)

Hope you all have a wonderful week!  And as usual, let me know if you’d like to share your book reviews or notes with us!
