Catch up quick with the bookish news of the past few days ... or take a deeper dive into each story. Your choice!

  • English-language books — versus their translations — are seeing a sales boom in Europe, and that's actually not a good thing, financially speaking, for the authors (The New York Times).

  • Fred C. Trump III, the nephew of former President Donald Trump and the older brother of Mary Trump, is also writing a memoir about the family; All in the Family: The Trumps and How We Got This Way comes out July 30 (The New York Times).

  • The NY Times also has three literary-adjacent obituaries: Ben Potter, who narrated popular comic books on YouTube; Harrison White, a sociologist whose books reminded many readers of James Joyce's writing style; and David Boaz, a prominent Libertarian who published essays and books.

  • Ursula K. Le Guin’s home in Portland, Oregon, will become a writers residency (Associated Press).

  • Early images of The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim, an anime movie set before the original trilogy takes place, are out ahead of the December 13 theatrical release (Book Riot).
