Why do Americans love Jane Austen so much? The BBC (who else) takes a look at possible reasons.
"The Colbert Bump didn’t get so much media attention and public support because everyone wanted to talk about me and my novel. People wanted to support book culture, to say that books and writers matter, and that we should be doing everything we can to ensure their continued existence, if not their success. In short, The Book is not dead!" Our own Edan Lepucki and Stephan Eirik Clark talk about their experiences as debut authors on "The Colbert Bump," and the piece pairs nicely with Edan and Millions staff writer Bill Morris's article about the many paths writers follow to publication.
