It’s been a busy past week, with classes starting last Thursday and some upheaval at my day job. But, I’m trying to relax and catch up on my blog reading and the news. Here’s some of my favorite links of the week.

Cataloging (and conserving and digitizing) the personal map collection of King George III at the British Library – all 60,000 of them.
16 books to read this year before they hit the theaters this year. The book is almost always better than the movie, but I’m looking forward to Vampire Academy, The Fault in Our Stars, Divergent, the Giver, and Gone Girl. I’ll have to add the others to my to read list!
The Pew Research Center’s 10 facts about Americans and public libraries.
