This week’s edition of Random News for Book Lovers:

  • Apple has reportedly filed a patent for a new technology that would allow easier iPhone/iPad reading in bright sunlight, at least while wearing polarized sunglasses.  No word on when the technology could be available in Apple products.
  • As if being the future Queen of England wasn’t enough, it turns out that Kate Middleton is related to literary great Jane Austen.  Read about it on Beattie’s Book Blog.
  • Want to know what Bernie Madoff is reading in jail?  Check it out here, along with some suggestions on what he should be reading instead.  This story also reaffirms my secret desire to serve time, although I would like to do so by committing something lesser of a crime.
  • It might be a little early to call the death of bookstores.  Read the story here, along with some pithy suggestions on how they can evolve to keep up with the times.  Thanks to A Writer’s Desk for bringing the story our way.
  • Lastly, if you love the sight of big, beautiful bookshelves, then you’re going to love Bookshelf Porn.  Thanks to The Book Garden for bringing it to our attention.
