Libraries and Books

Here is a list of 27 “snappy rules” for library design. My favorite, having worked in a public library, is #20 – Never create a cozy corner you do not want occupied by a bag lady. (link from Jessamyn)

Many of my fellow bibliophile bloggers have announced how many books they have read over the past year. Jessamyn has a great list here of other people’s lists. Inspired by these cool people, I bought an index card binder to keep my own list this year. Maybe it will inspire me to read a bit more. Keep in mind, Buffy is now over, so I can get back to reading on a normal schedule.
