Book-related blogs, reviews, and articles of note for April 10, 2010:

Two articles, one by Peter Osnos at The Daily Beast, the other by Victoria Pacchiana at The Millions, on the not-so-bleak future that faces us in the post-ebook world. The former argues that traditional paper books will continue to co-exist alongside ebooks, while the latter weighs the pros and cons of the Kindle revolution and finds significant benefits behind the spreading technology.

A review of American Taliban, a new work of fiction by Peter Abraham, by Karen Mahajan at BookForum.com. I saw this book yesterday and it looked somewhat intriguing, but was non-to-thrilled with it. American Taliban won’t be jumping to the top of my reading list, but I will be keeping my ear to the ground for dissenting opinion.

Stephen Fry, the British actor and comedian (among other things), of Jeeves and Wooster fame (where he played opposite of Hugh Laurie, aka Dr. Gregory House), as a new book out, titled Stephen Fry In America in accompaniment to his recent BBC documentary mini-series. Jeremy Lott at the Washington Times gives a favorable review to what looks like a fairly entertaining travelogue.
