  • Disney celebrated Queen Elizabeth’s 90th Birthday by releasing a new Winnie the Pooh story (above). 90 is, coincidentally, the same age as Pooh himself. And thanks to Disney, you can download the digital edition of the book for free (as a PDF), here.

      Aren’t those hysterical?! My favorite was Pride and Prejudice with Lady Godiva on the cover, though the Wizard of Oz with a red planet and a pair of fighter jets is pretty funny, too.

      Sorry your garden is getting eaten by bugs and other critters (not to mention hailed upon!) But I’m glad to hear you enjoyed The Aeronaut’s Windlass; it’s one I’d like to read.

      I gave them some pretty detailed feedback. There are aspects I like, but they definitely need to fix the Currently Reading display. It’s on the wrong side (too far from the scrollbar, where my mouse usually sits), it only shows 3 of the books you’re reading, and there’s no way to quickly edit the status of the books it doesn’t show. At least they’re letting people see it and comment on it before they roll it out.
