Twitter has already spawned a deal for an appropriately meta book, so you knew that Tumblr couldn't be far behind. Tumblr's is all about animals, because people don't read "words" any more.

CHILLAX BLOGOSPHERE, THE RUMORS ARE TRUE!

PETSWHOWANTTOKILLTHEMSELVES: THE BLOG WILL SOON BE PETSWHOWANTTOKILLTHEMSELVES: THE BOOK. IN A RELATED STORY, LITERATURE IS DEAD.

Admirably self-deprecating! Blogger book conjurer extraordinaire Kate Lee at ICM did the deal, of course, although she's not giving up any more details. Jessica Amason and our own Richard Blakeley are also pitching their own Tumblr-to-tome deal for their celebration of gluttony, This Is Why You're Fat. (And commenter Soup points out two other Tumblr book deals: Garfield Minus Garfield and Postcards From Yo Momma. Note to self: borrow some money from Doree Shafrir.) America has a lot of this to look forward to after it finishes its bacon. [All via future book Pets Who Want to Kill Themselves]:
