    Ugh, all this budget garbage makes me sad. Obviously, we need to make sure our defense is well-funded, but I hate that they think it’s ok to just take money away from things like libraries and museums.

    I knew about a couple of these stories, but got to read them in more detail here. Too bad about the budget cuts but I don’t think it will go through– that would mean more people agreeing with a crazy idea!

    I read about James Dashner, and also heard about the “alleged” issues with Jay Asher of 13 Reasons Why. How sad for this to happen in such a feel-good business such as book selling/publishing (though everyone is innocent until proven guilty)…

    I applaud Kristen Burns for making a diversity list but hope it is expanded to include more genres 🙂

    Many good links! Thanks, Lark!

    I can’t even with the cuts to anything related to education. I just can’t.

    Thank you for the no-sexual-violence links! I’ve read some of them (just finished and loved To Say Nothing of the Dog, for instance) but have added others to my TBR as a result.

      I know… I’m appalled at the cuts to education and related programs.

      I added a few of those books to my TBR list, too‐including the Connie Willis book. Good to know you enjoyed it!
