It looks like it is going to be an interesting week in books:
First, the sad news:
Robert B. Parker passed away. He brought back the hard-boiled detective novels with his Spenser series. Parker wrote over 50 books, 37 were in this series. If you didn’t read his books you might remember the TV show Spenser for Hire that aired during the 80s.
For the glad news:
And in funny news; a story about a place that costs publishers money , because they lend books out for free.
