I am back in Ohio after a trip to the wilds of Northern Minnesota. I am trying to get caught up on everything as I was basically away from a computer all week (except for painfully slow dial-up to check email on occasion). Here are a few links from National Review Online to get the week started with:

– Thomas Hibbs discusses Harry Potter, Jane Austen and character education over at NRO.

– Also at NRO, Catherine Seipp discusses the joys of buying used and out of print books online.

– And just in case you haven’t had enough, check out this NRO book buying guide.

I will try to post some reviews of the books I read on vacation this week. I also have a couple of potential interviews in the works, so stay tuned.
