How cute are these end pages?
My time as a student is coming to a close, I‘ll be graduating with my MLIS and graduate certificate in archives in December. I didn‘t stop between my grad and undergrad so it‘s been a long time since I haven‘t had homework. I want to work in an archives but I‘m open to all opportunities in libraries, archives, museums, nonprofits etc. any advice for emerging professionals? Any books that helped you in a job search? #jobhunt #libraries #archives
I‘ve been MIA on here but excited to be back. Turns out having 2 jobs and doing graduate school leaves you very run down lol. Excited to be back and will try to post more. Here‘s a required reading for my research methods course. #keeponkeepingon
1.(apart from working) 1-2
2. 11 from 2 libraries
3. 6 nonfiction, 1 tv show, 2 chick lit, 1 literary fiction, 1 YA
4. Nope I have anxiety about that (even though my job gives me fine free privileges)
5. None trying to tackle my books I own and using Hoopla with no wait time
6. One I‘m hoping will just magically be available is Angie Thomas‘s On the Come Up
Current read is tagged :)
Some days working at a public library is thankless but then one little thing happens that just warms my cold heart lol . I helped a little girl and her mom find a book today with little to go on, after a few minutes I turned my computer screen “does this look like the book?” Her face lit up and as I looked up the call number her mom said “she‘s a librarian and used her magic to find your book”.
Feeling inspired by my newest read. A.J Jacobs commits to life experiments in his books and is trying to be the healthiest man alive. Going system by system he tries to follow all the conflicting advice about health. He‘s a humor writer and that‘s what I enjoy about it. I loved his book “The Year of Living Biblically” and have read it multiple times. #breakfast #funnybooks #health
So the world is rocked by an epidemic called the Georgia Flu in the aftermath a traveling band of musicians and actors travel the apocalyptic country to perform but it‘s sooo much more than that. It‘s so wonderfully complex and characters are connected in ways that were delightful to discover. Loved it so much #apocalypticfiction #litsyatoz #theletterM
“Their most spectacular experiment involved a substance known as diethyl zinc or DEZ...but it has an unfortunate side effect: it bursts into flames on contact with air and explodes if exposed to water.” Lesson for everyone be careful with paper deacidifcation projects
“Nearly only counts in horseshoes and hand-grenades.”(p.156) I‘ve been so busy with school my October TBR has fizzled down to just this book which is perfect for Halloween. I‘m about halfway through, any suggestions for which Neil Gaiman book I should read next? #neilgaiman #halloweenreads #suggestions
Almost caught up with the the show. Let‘s find out if the comics are better.
It‘s been a long week but finally I can read in bed. Listening to nature sounds on Spotify makes this all the more immersive.
Granted my last full read was 7 years ago, this is one of my favorite sci-fi middle grade books. Characters have a great dynamic and I like the world.
