>Hunkered down writing my reviews for the September issue (among them the new Knuffle Bunny, a Mary Downing Hahn and Annexed), I’ve been simultaneously worried that this blog isn’t keeping up up up! with the action, leading me to worry that Scott Westerfeld had it right, that the future was all going to be about getting attention. The New York Times says that might be true.

So in the spirit of page view hits and loads of comments, do we think that Lindsay Lohan is actually going to surrender herself to justice today?

    >Nah, Lilo is notorious enough for hardcover.

  3. >Three cheers for MDH! Is her her 30th book "The Ghost of Crutchfield Hall"?

    Lindsay doesn't need a book-whatever she wants to say she can just write on her nails. I think that nail polish stint got more media coverage that any book she could pen.

From Gawker's "Lohan's Last Stand: Linsday's Surrender and Imprisonment, Minute By Minute." (Ah, hanging out in a vacation rental on the Hudson with Lisbeth Salanger and my laptop.)

    >When I decided to stop my blog, a friend showed me a t-shirt which reads No One Gives a F*** about Your Goddamn Blog. I love it. I wish I'd seen that shirt two years ago.

    (But I do enjoy your blog very much, Roger. Twas mine which deserved to die.)

    A new Mary Downing Hahn book, yay! I sincerely have no idea who or what Lindsay Lohan is. My last peek at Celebrity News gave me an earful of Mel Gibson-spew, and I'm extremely hesitant to find out what the deal is with Lohan, for fear of having to wash my ears out with bleach again.
