coolest librarian business cards, or coolest librarian business cards of all time? [via]
Thinking about business cards to take to Umbrella 2013 because I think the most meaningful ‘networking’ encounters I experience will be outside the hubbub of the conference. I am struggling to think of text to put on, aside from my name, email address and Twitter name, because I don’t know what I am yet. Partway through my Master’s degree, I’m not a qualified librarian just yet, but I don’t want to crowd the card with all my interests and aspirations.
“Star Trek,” “Robinson Crusoe,” and “David Copperfield”
NYT reporter Charlie Savage has started a Tumblr documenting books that catch his eye in the Guantanamo Bay Prison Library. There is something both so heartening, and heartbreaking, about all of these images. (I wonder, too, how many of the detainees can read English?)
2 out of 90381039821 things I’m excited for term break and Summertime!!!!
1. A short PNW trip and Molly Moon and Seattle and Elliot Bay Books and perusing their “ideal bookshelf”!!! (via Flavorwire)
2. My Ideal Bookshelf. Is it weird that I really love reading about writers’ favourite books? Such a good selection in here! David Sedaris, Junot Diaz, Miranda July, Judd Apatow, etcetcetc. Also, Is it weird that I’m going to buy this and read this in bed from cover to cover, but not before tearing out the page with “writer” Stephanie Meyers’ ideal bookshelf? NOT AT ALL.
“My ideal bookshelf” - a nice idea for a library display?
Literally no pictures of me exist between the ages of 12 and 17 but here are some from sixth form, so 17-18. Top left is me posing with the school library display, right trying to fit into a locker, and bottom me with the register. I was perpetually the register monitor. I loved that job.
