Ewwww this book sucks

Another LJ user chimes in with some thoughts about being judged by by his librarian for what he checks out of his library, since it’s only a subset of what he actually reads…. Some librarians chimed in to let him know that not only are we not snobby about what the patron’s are reading [we’re just happy they are reading, duh] but we adore the trashy mystery and the cheesy tabloid magazines ourselves once in a while. [thanks thaddeus]

throwback and proud!

It’s always nice when the “computers will replace libraries” doomsayers are funny about it. I don’t really see Amazon’s “search inside the book” feature as any real threat, but then again, I use a typewriter. I also never noticed that the word mildewey has the word dewey in it until now. [thanks all]
