CAAF: Morning coffee
This is the world we made edition:
• Virginia Heffernan reports that the Oxford English Dictionary may soon be out of print as it moves to a web-only format. Luddites cry, "O.E.D. no!" Relatedly, in this week's Publishers Weekly, Gwenda Bond explores how Wikipedia's dominance is affecting the publishing model for encyclopedias and other reference works.
• Janet Maslin gives James Frey's new novel a rave. But the review is written in a bad James Frey imitation. Which made this reader squirm, cringe.
