Rewind. Recap.

The week that was...

March 2nd was Dr. Seuss's birthday and we had two posts from people who love his books (here and here). The 70-year-old comic book in which Batman made his debut was sold at an auction for more than $1m (£655,000) and broke the record of a Superman comic which was sold earlier that week. Marathi blogs will also be considered as literature at the 83rd Marathi Literary Convention that will be held from March 26 to 28, 2010. BibliOdyssey has some fabulous examples of book bindings. Eric Carle's 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' has been voted the best children's bedtime story ever written in a survey of UK-based parents.
Dolly, the dog, is back to answer a few author-related questions. Decorate your book with these funky jacket+bookmarks.
