Friday Links: Book Vending Machines, Hipster Lit, Bookends, and More!

Happy Friday. What are you reading this weekend? I’m finishing up Just Kids by Patti Smith, relishing the last few chapters before it comes to an end. It took me a long time to pick up this book because I didn’t really know that much about Patti Smith and I thought it would be a typical rock and roll memoir full of drug, sex, and you know, rock and roll. But I’m so glad to find I was completely wrong. It’s so much more. Just Kids is a beautiful meditation on young love and art. I so recommend it.

Thanks to my colleague Denise for telling me about this cool home-made vending machine that dispenses books at random. Next time you’re in Toronto with $2 to spare, be sure to check it out.
