This and that in the news

Stuttgart City Library, Stuttgart, Germany
 Flavorwire (always a big fan of books and reading) has a list of the 25 most beautiful public libraries in the world.

Two more library related articles were in today's Atlanta Journal Constitution (thanks for all the coverage lately, AJC - libraries can use all the positive press they can get these days!):
  • Libraries add more to the mix
  • The other was a "My Opinion" piece by Karen Huppertz (which I can't unfortunately find online to link to, but was on Metro page B5 in the 4/22/12 AJC), which actually gives a shout-out to Friends of the Library organizations and encourages donations to them!

Another piece of book related news concerns the Pulitzer Committee decision to not award the Fiction Prize this year (a real slap in the face and very unpopular decision).
