PQ Weekly Roundup: 04 May 2018

pqroundup2Every Friday, the PQ Weekly Roundup collects the most shared links in our social media network—bookish articles, reviews, quizzes, recommendations and more—in convenient digest form.

  • Did you know that May is Short Story Month? Well, now you do. Here’s a little list of authors’ favourite short stories for you to discover.
  • I’m always fascinated by literary intrigue. This article investigates how fake books sold on Amazon could be used for nefarious deeds.
  • If you’ve ever wanted to peek inside the Library of Congress, this video will give you a first-hand look at the venerable building filled with history.
  • Can you believe R. Murray Schafer’s World Soundscape Project is 50 years old? Learn more about it here, and if you’re keen, check out Schafer’s memoir, My Life on Earth and Elsewhere, as well.
  • And in case you missed it, it’s a new month at the Porcupine’s Quill, and we’re taking in the sunlight, fresh air, and the smell of ink and paper. Catch up with us and what we’re doing in the PQL newsletter for May.



Enjoy your fresh crop of book links and have a great weekend full of sunshine and literature.
