In this weekly feature, we provide a curated selection of writing, events, and curiosities from around the Internet.

  • Artists’ Sketchbooks Online has a huge collection of sketchbooks from every time, place, and level of notoriety imaginable—from the Lascaux caves to Rosaire Appel’s repurposed books.
  • Has the spark gone out of your relationship with the frumpy, university-allocated bookshelf in your dorm? Simply take off your pants, activate anonymous browsing, and click on over to the extraordinary racks on display at Bookshelf Porn.
  • Junot Diaz fans will love this interview about science fiction, race, and becoming a writer.
  • Ever wondered why great literature is so prudish? Read this essay on why sex looms so large symbolically in writing, but also remains peculiarly unexplored.
