Saturday night stuff

The Telegraph lists The Lost Symbol author Dan Brown’s 20 worst sentences.

Also from The Telegraph is a list of the 25 best book to film adaptations.

In the Guardian, author Kim Stanley Robinson criticizes the Man Booker judges for omitting science fiction.

In follow up news on the library front, legislation has been passed to keep Philadelphia’s public libraries open. Good on ya, mates!

Also from Philadelphia, The Complete Persepolis was announced as the official 2009 selection for One Book, One Philadelphia. I point this out because Persepolis, by Marjane Satrapi, is one of the finest graphic novels I’ve ever read.
