This Week in Reading February 11-17, 2007

The stars may indeed shine on this time of year. As prolific as the authors in last week's list were, this week's group includes one who sold over 500 million copies making that writer the number one bestselling author in the Twentieth Century. (Hint: you've not seen the name in this blog before. Answer next week.)
This week also gives us the anniversary of several things that have helped readers directly: the incandescent light bulb, a milestone in computers, and the first magazine published in America. But it was, surprisingly, not the one shown, published by Ben Franklin. The other one hit the streets three days earlier by his ex-partner who reasoned he could make more money quicker. He didn't.
