'Adé: A Love Story'
Good news!! Madonna is making a new movie … and, thankfully, she’ll be behind the camera instead of in front of it. Variety is reporting today that Madonna has decided to direct the big screen adaptation of the novel Adé: A Love Story, written by Rebecca Walker (daughter of famed author Alice Walker). At this very early stage of the project, not much is yet known about the production except for the fact, of course, that Madonna will helm the project.

First Time Ever
In honor of the 50th anniversary of the release of 4 of Shel Silverstein‘s most popular books, Harper Collins is releasing one of his books in e-book format. Silverstein has never even allowed his books to ever be released in paperback format so this e-book thing is very special. On February 18, the classic book The Giving Tree will be made available electronically for the first time ever … possibly making itself available to an entire new generation of readers. More »
The TV Guide
A few months ago my friend Tamar and I were talking about the possibility of reviving the Turtle Party Book Club. Some of you readers may recall that a few years ago, a bunch of us got together to start a book club where we picked a book to read each month and discussed it … but what actually happened was that some of us read the book and most of us just liked to get together for a monthly hang session. In the past few weeks, Tam managed to pull together a group of interested parties and it looks like we are going to give the book club thing another go. The consensus was that we would read the 2012 memoir Wild by Cheryl Strayed as our first selection (so that we could get the book read before the movie comes out later this year). Last night I spent some time reading Wild and, yeah, I think we made a great choice going with this book. More »
