The Academy Awards are this Sunday and while I've only seen three of the best picture nominees I genuinely really liked all of them so something else will probably win.
But in case you haven't seen it, you can watch one of the short animated film nominees online for free! And trust me, it's a good one, I really love it. In fact, I enjoyed it so much I tried to find the other nominees but none of them are free. Watching this reminded me how delightful even a short film (or story) can be. I think everyone who loves stories will love this one.
In other bookish news, I enjoyed watching Ann Patchett on The Colbert Report.
Also, I just read about J.K. Rowling selling her first adult novel to Little, Brown. Strangely, I have like no feelings about this. I don't feel excited at all. Though, it does occur to me that whatever she goes on to write might be better than Harry Potter. The truth is nothing will be Harry Potter again! How about you guys...are you excited?
