Last week, a certain deceased author had the bestselling book, four books in the top 10, and 25 unique titles in the top 100. What did I miss?

Though I doubt HR will notice or recognize it, I just realized that the start of this month marks 10 (nonconsecutive) years working at +O'Reilly. My first stretch lasted four years and ten months, and I've just passed five years and two months on my second.

At the movie theater, noticing Shazam starting to be used as a kind of audio QR code to engage with ads.

The LEGO Movie is every bit as good as you've heard. Quite possibly much better. I'm actually not sure exactly what you've heard.

Yet another person wrote a clickworthy headline filled with hyperbole but lacking any real information about the story at all. What happened next will make you defenestrate your computer.

Rick Riordan's latest installment in the Heroes of Olympus series sold 350,000 copies last week. Kids read.

unfortunately he has taken no interest in reading right now. Everything is about writing his plays and acting scenes for his fellow classmates.  After a scene is written,  the teacher encourages them to go to other classrooms to perform.
     They are only about 5 minutes a piece.

I am keeping the information that you sent and when he wants to look at them again I will have it.

Thank you very much.
