Bookmobile news flood

I should have seen it coming: the US is looking towards National Bookmobile Day on April 14. That suddenly explains a lot...

This is pretty neat, though: authors driving bookmobiles! And interviewing people about books that changed their lives. Michael Ondaatje could ask me about anything in the cramped quarters of an antique bookmobile ANY DAY.

Also featured, but tragically less hot than Ondaatje: Lewis Black, Junot Diaz, Daniel Handler... Hey, only 10 out 40 of are women. What's with that?

Anyway, none of the stops are near the Canadian border, unless you want to swim across the great lakes to Michigan etc. Sigh. I have already met Ondaatje, and heard Diaz speak, so I'll sit this one out. I guess.
