Cory Doctorow recomienda y reseña algunos libros para niños y jóvenes, desde Neil Gaiman “Fortunately, The Milk”, hasta una chica-lobo (que tiene una banda). Si no sabían qué leer en el verano, ya tienen de dónde elegir. :)

Porque en Brasil hay cosas bonitas (que no son deportivas), como librerías.

A beautiful bookshop in Brazil

The people of Brazil have something else to cheer about in addition the recent World Cup festivities. Check out the Livraria Cultura bookshop in São Paulo designed by Studio MK-27.
