When I hear a new hire start promising things that we can’t do…

Correction: When I realized I promised things I cannot do.

(Yet.)


Imaginary Book-Seller/Library Product

I really wish there was a single service where I could export my fiction records that would (1) analyze those records for gaps in series, (2) check for recently published works, and (3) create a feed to track all those gaps andnew releases. Then maybe I could star certain authors or series and get pop-ups informing me as soon as anything new is published.

the desolation of smaug: a summary

Getting nerdy here: It would be an AWESOME student writing assignment to combine selected fan-cast images and text posts in this style as a form of book report. Then students can share them among themselves and I would have those books ready for check-out in the library. Awwww, now I want to do this idea immediately,

My body needs to switch over to teacher time again. Why did I get morning drop-off duty? I am such a zombie at the start of the day.

when you clean your glasses and they go from like 280p to 1080p 

I don’t understand how crying leaves my glasses looking like a Pollock.

I accidentally started a Wikipedia hoax

How did a joke we made up about Amelia Bedelia while we were stoned get repeated all over the Internet for more than five years, by blogs and reporters and elementary school students and even the author of Amelia Bedelia himself?

Five years ago, a couple of high college kids messed with a children’s book page.Last week, they realized they’d never been caught.

Teachable moment.

Twisted Rainbow Bookstore for Kids in São Paulo designed by Arthur Casas

I am going to submit these photos to my administration when we begin figuring out the floor plan of the library renovation. That floor shelf is giving me life and has some great applications in space-strapped NYC.

Yes please!
