Recommended: Highlights from the Past Week

The most interesting items from the past week: The phasing out of the Dewey Decimal System in American libraries; the ten best Roald Dahl stories (in the Daily Telegraph); the sad news that Borders bookstore has filed for bankruptcy; in The New York Times, Walter Isaacson’s review of a new biography of Socrates by Bettany Hughes; and, in The New York Review of Books, the kind of pointless-but-fascinating historical exposition I love—“Who Was Worse, Hitler or Stalin?”
