One of my least successful displays (from a circulation perspective). Readers were less inclined to check-out the books, but their interest was piqued (and surprised in some cases) as they turned this display into a bit of a game (the title were written on the back).
Today’s the Day – The Unlovables
listening :: a lot of emo music (the theme of this past week) and a variety of comedy podcasts;
reading :: NJLA conference proposals and my junk email account;
eating :: iced coffee with coconut milk (I know it is 50° outside);
writing :: a library technology class outline and my most recent reviews for Library Journal (so happy to be reviewing again);
loving :: everything about the MBMBAM community;
looking ahead :: to maybe running a race tomorrow and some peace next week.
What are you guys up?
