Every 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.
If you’ve ever worked in a bookshop (or wanted to), you might like to take a gander at this piece on how working in a used bookstore changes you and shapes your bookish habits.
Censorship is on the rise around the world. I wonder what it is about our current situation that has laid the foundation for so many banned books.
“Writing didn’t serve the purpose I wanted it to, which was to fix the fundamentally broken relationship between myself and other people. Reading—slowly, over decades—did.” On books and self-discovery.

And finally, take a peek at this month’s PQL newsletter, including musings from yours truly, the porcupette, on our finite reading lives, as well as a look at what’s coming up next from the Porcupine’s Quill.

Happy Friday (the 13th!),
