I walked into our neighborhood Blockbuster last week and noticed that they are now selling books. I suppose they're all movie tie-ins or inspirations, but it still seemed...odd. Of course, I'm a compartmentalized kind of person. Thoughts? Perhaps this will be next?
Yes, President Obama won the Nobel Prize...but what about the Ig Noble awards? I think this might be my husband's kind of research!
This picture gave me another giggle.
Not making me giggle, meanwhile, is the news that Emory libraries are cutting 29 positions. On the flip side, I was intrigued with the idea of consolidating service desks into a "one-stop information center." Thoughts on this? Too much like Wal-Mart, or would it actually provide better service?
More magazines are also shutting down...
An article extolling Google Books, which I love-love-love...
And one on Edith Wharton and Paris, a city which I did not love when I visited more than 10 years ago. I'd be willing to give it another shot if someone wants to send me, though. :)
Finally, a follow-up to the report about the class differences between Facebook and MySpace users. I am intrigued by this idea!
I'm also intrigued by the books I'm currently reading, but I'm taking my time and savoring them...thus making rather slow progress. We'll chat again later this week, though. Hope yours is off to a good start!
