I often think about how long it takes to receive items in interlibrary loans. I can't predict when new items will come in. They tend to come in batches.
I had an odd reference question about a lawyer today at the library. Apparently, the old trick of being both a lawyer and a priest was being played out. First, you get a law degree, then you get ordained, then if you are truly ambitious, you get registered as an auxiliary (volunteer) policeman. This allows you to do a lot of things which your average citizen cannot in the United States, not pay taxes (your law office is your church), consult your law clients as their spiritual counsel, and show your fraternity with the local police. Watch for this kind of thing carefully.
I placed a few items on hold in my attempt to read 6 graphic novels for the graphic novel challenge. The first is Billy Hazelnuts by Tony Millionaire, and the second is Castle Waiting by Linda Medley. Castle Waiting has an introduction by Jane Yolen. It is the story of what happens after Sleeping Beauty wakes up. I am looking forward to reading it.
I really like Tony Millionaire's Sock Monkey. The graphic novel won the Eisner Award in 2004.
I found something to read on the train home today. Detective Story by Imre Kertesz. Apparently, the author won the Nobel Prize for Literature. It is a very brief work, only 112 pages long. This is a good size for a train read. The book is also about the size of a small paperback, even though it is a hardcover. It should be very convenient to read.
I did a minor change to my blog. I searched google using the link search to find who was linking t my blog. I added a couple of sites to my Link Exchange in my sidebar. The first is The Singing Librarian, a rather interesting librarian blog. The other is Monday Morning Power about how to have a very positive mental attitude. The blog can be fun, funny, and uplifting to read.
