Check out these five great stories from around the web.

  1. The Obamas are each writing a memoir and, judging by their post-presidential vacation photos, are going to have a lot of fun doing it.
  2. The war between novels vs. short stories is still raging (maybe a bit of an exaggeration?). But this list of interconnected short story collections showcases 10 story packages that help to bridge the gap between the Novel Greasers and the Short Story Socs.
  3. A glimpse into how (what might be) the most fashionable bookseller on the planet started selling books of their own. Dream big, kids.
