My friend Rich alerted me to this Book Bench post at The New Yorker, which aggregates a lot of interesting book-related news stories. My favorite has to be the one about Italian youths adding padlocks to their bridges in homage to the YA novel Ho Voglia di Te (I Want You) by Federico Moccia.
Above, a wintry photo I took on 20 Dec 2010 of padlocks attached to the Schenley Bridge in Pittsburgh, PA. Michael Chabon fans will remember this bridge as the one Phlox bicycles over in The Mysteries of Pittsburgh. (I have a bunch of insights into that book, as I worked in the library where it was set, so maybe I will write about it soon-ish.)
