Ten Lyrical and Lovely Literary Tattoos

[via BookTrib]


"Librarians’ values are as sound as Girl Scouts’: truth, free speech, and universal literacy. And, like Scouts, they possess a quality that I think makes librarians invaluable and indispensable: they want to help. They want to help us. They want to be of service. And they’re not trying to sell us anything."
— Marilyn Johnson- This Book is Overdue: How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All (via marissathelibrarian)

Over at Book Riot, I wrote about some of the fun literary places to see and visit throughout the Great Plains. We’re going to North and South Dakota, Nebraska, and Kansas, and since there are sometimes lengthy stretches of driving, I’m also talking about books set in those places.

Bulk Donations to Libraries?

Ray Friesen, author of Pirate Penguin vs. Ninja Chicken and Fairy Tales I Just Made Up is looking to clear out some of his inventory and wants the books to go to libraries. He just asked on twitter if anyone knows of a way to do bulk donations to libraries and I promised the pass the question on. 

Any ideas, librarians?

Now that our favorite Doctor is back in action, we couldn’t resist putting together a list of books featuring time travel. If you fancy a trip through time, try one of these titles.

Love this list: time travel is one of our favorite science fiction/fantasy themes!
