Literary Starbucks: Freshly-Brewed Bookish Humor, No-Whip, Half-Caf - Nora Anderson Katz, Wilson Isaac Josephson, Jill Madeline Poskanzer, Harry Bliss

I have been a Starbucks-in-a-Barnes and Noble barista, and I remember the authors mural well. Huh, I don't know if they still use it. This book is a better tribute to both the coffee shops and to the authors than any I could imagine. The Tumblr was amusing, so I was predisposed to like this. But these clever people made it better: they gave it a story arc, and lots of interaction, and there are illustrations by Harry Bliss. It is still fundamentally a book of English major humor, but I've loved that sort of thing my whole life. This will go next to my copy of Texts From Jane Eyre, and I'll probably read it at least once every year from now on.
