Bookmarks: Winnie the Pooh makes a comeback, Dubya wants to write a book, and more

  • Winnie the Pooh is back, 80 years after his first published appearance, in the first authorized sequel to A.A. Milne’s 1920s collection Return to the Hundred Acre Wood. (CBC.ca)
  • George W. Bush is planning to write a book – something about the toughest decisions he had to make as president – and says though he doesn’t know how long it will take him to write it, he’ll be able to “get ‘er done.” (The Guardian)
  • Another comeback, this time from Chris Rock, who’s scored a deal with Grand Central Publishing to write a book of “comedic observations.” (His last book was 1997’s Rock This!). Perhaps a collaboration with the above? (CTV.ca)
  • The shortlist for the Romantic Novel of the Year award has been revealed – read it and weep. Literally. (The Guardian)
  • A new media start-up called The Printed Blog is publishing free newspapers twice-daily in cities across the U.S., collecting the best local blog posts for those cities. Printed news and information – what a novel concept! (Wired.com)
