But Would Steve McQueen Go Vegan?:  The authors of the wildly-successful Skinny Bitch diet series are now targeting the fellasSkinny Bastard, a "testosterone repackaging" of Skinny Bitch, goes on sale next week with a goal to help men clean up their diets.  “I think the guys will enjoy it once they have it,” states co-author Kim  Barnouin. “But I think it’s going to be the wives and girlfriends and sisters buying these books.”  In other news, I now know what I'm getting for Father's Day.

False advertising:  I'm certainly not against technology improvements in book production, but calling it the Espresso Book Machine sets the wrong expectations.  My heart jumped at the headline, as I thought there was a Kindle/DeLonghi fusion on the horizon (not sure I'd want to haul that on the bus, however). Still...it's pretty cool.

Happy 40th to a Very Hungry Caterpillar:  Since 1969, Eric Carle's beloved caterpillar has been chowing through a variety of foods (thank heavens for the green leaf), and the LA Times today lists some of the more staggering facts surrounding The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  (For example, every 30 seconds, a copy is sold worldwide.  Amazing.)

The Espresso Book Machine would have been cool 15 years ago. But when we have Kindles/iPhones/Google, a more appropriate name would have been The French Press Book Machine. And somehow this article leaves out the current pricing model, which is around 30 POUNDS for a 300 page book. This is truly the last gasp of a dying delivery model.
