Librarians Gone Wild

I love this recent article from the Austin American Statesman. It just goes to show that librarians aren't all what you would expect!

Now where can I get my hands on that calendar?

How many items do you have checked out?

My hubby forwarded me an interesting poll from

The people that typically read slashdot are very technologically oriented, and I wonder if that skews the results from the average population. However, I have to say I was a tad disappointed in the results of the poll. The comments at the end were illuminating.

Librarians, take note!

p.s. I currently have two books checked out and just returned five.

I'm a weiner! I mean, a winner!

So I follow author Patti O'Shea on twitter (@patti_oshea). She's funny, I would recommend you follow her, too.

The other day she announced that she would be guest blogging on Crystal Jordan's blog, so I mosey-d over to check it out. Patti decided to give away an autographed copy of In the Midnight Hour to someone who left a comment. I read, I commented, and I WON!!!!

Now, you have to know how cool this is for me. I'm a librarian. Authors are the equivalent of rock stars in my world. Seriously!

I am so looking forward to reading this first book in Patti O'Shea's Light Warrior series. I'll let you know what I think of it. Edge of Dawn (book 3) just came out a few days ago, so I have some catching up to do!
