Around the Web: Lil' Libros, Bookcase Street Art, a Les Mis Video Game, and TikTok

Welcome back to Around the Web, our weekly roundup of bookish content from across the internet! This week we’re sharing a publishing success story, some bookcase inspired street art, a video game based on Les Miserables, and an update to citation styles.

Lil’ Libros

Today shared the story of two mom’s who started a business to create more inclusive children’s books. The company, Lil’ Libros, publishes bilingual children’s books that celebrate dual identities.

Bookcase Street Art

Utretch, a city in the Netherlands, has some street art booklovers are sure to enjoy: a giant bookcase. Check out The Sized for the story behind the literature-inspired art and for the photos.

A Les Misérables Video Game

Victor Hugo meets Street Fighter in this Les Misérables video game! If you think that sounds like a bit of an odd mashup, wait till you read about Robojean. That’s right, there is indeed a robotic Jean Valjean character to play as. Lit Hub has more details.

How Do You Cite TikTok?

The school year’s starting up soon, and with plenty of professionals now using TikTok, it makes sense that essay writers might find themselves needing to cite the social media platform. Well, good news: the MLA Handbook now has guidance for that. This means there’s now an official style for quoting from BookTok, perhaps opening the door for spicing up some English Lit papers.
