This map has been showing up all over Facebook and Twitter this week. I’m not sure who originally created it, but the earliest example I can find is a Facebook post from Peace Hill Press in Virginia.

On December 2 of this year, the Mount Horeb Public Library in Wisconsin hosted a reading of I Am Jazz, a picture book about a transgender child.

Thanks, Lynne M. Thomas!
Isn’t this wonderful? More information here. I love the comment at Gizmodo saying “They should also make a magazine version that randomly fires jets of water in all directions, like those subscription cards that constantly fall out.” Thanks, Esau Katz!
This candle is not a joke! It is real! You can buy it for $18 here. Frostbeard Studio also sells “old books” scented candles. I don’t know how either kind actually smells. If you know, tell us in the comments. Also available: sprays etc. and another candle. Thanks, Diane Westerfield!
