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

  • Did you know about the website I Heart Bookstores, which makes it easy to locate and go to an indie bookstore? (Nate Hoffelder)

  • Emily Henry's latest novel, Funny Story, is also being adapted for the screen like all of her previous works, but this time, she'll be doing the screenwriting (Variety).

  • Henry Hoke's novel about — actually, narrated by — a mountain lion, Open Throat, is also being adapted, albeit for the stage (The New York Times). 

  • And, unless there's political intervention, Southampton, England's 500-year-old inn that Jane Austen actually frequented will be turned into student dorms (Literary Hub).

  • Twenty Canadian authors have withdrawn their work from consideration for Scotiabank Giller Prize, over the award's ties to companies involved in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict (Literary Hub).
