Seventh Inning Stretch
Okay, I’ll admit I had to stretch for something to write about today. I’ve got a couple of interesting things, like the first page of Jackie Kessler’s Tales of the Vampire—Carpe Noctem. From mtv.com:
Then the big reveal that got leaked:It’s been a strange week to be Joss Whedon.

And Barnes & Noble is going to offer textbook rental to students.
:Students Can Rent Online And Have It Shipped Or Stop by Their Barnes & Noble Campus Store
Barnes & Noble College has made the program easy for students, enabling them to rent their textbooks from the comfort of their dorm or home simply by logging into their campus bookstore’s e-commerce site. They can also rent from their campus Barnes & Noble bookstore. This innovative rental program gives students the added flexibility of paying for their rentals using any form of tender, including campus debit cards and student financial aid…
Rentals are just the newest addition to the list of options Barnes & Noble College is offering students, including digital, loose leaf, custom, new, used, and unbundled textbooks. “We’ve always been about providing our students with convenient, cost-saving textbook options. We think our rental program does just that and has the additional benefit of providing an online solution,” said Roberts.
It’s about time.
