Bookbits for January 22nd, 2013

  • Robert Langdon returns! On May 14th, to be exact, when Dan Brown’s newest thriller Inferno hits the shelves.
  • P. G. Wodehouse fans (and I’m sure you are legion): my apologies.  I am dreadfully tardy with the news that the Blandings books has been turned into a BBC 6-parter.  The first two episodes have aired already, but you can still catch the next four every Saturday (and see the iPlayer app to catch up).  Thanks to Sigrid for the link, which was well in advance; I’ve just been lagging!
  • Quiz! The Guardian commemorates the inauguration of Barack Obama with an American Presidents in Literature quiz.  I scored a paltry 7/15 and earned the stinging Guardian judgement of “No, you can’t. You make W look like Umberto Eco.” Ouch!
