Waiting for The Girl?  Well, keep waiting

National Public Radio reports that fans the final book in Stieg Larsson's Millennium popular trilogy (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, the Girl who Played with Fire) may have to wait a little longer to read The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest.  Even buying the book online may be problematic because any US sales violates the publishing agreement, says The Girl series publisher, Knopf.

Gag Me with a Spoon...Again

Remember that old classic from the 1980's - The Official Preppy Handbook?  Well, it's about to get a face lift.    The New York Times reports that True Prep is hoping to gain a whole new audience of preppy aficionados.  While some things remain the same, True Prep is going multi-cultural by adding a section on African-American preppies and adding information on what technology defines a prep.
