“American Gods” via HarperCollins

As any loyal reader of Neil Gaiman’s Blog already knows, Harper Collins had a vote on which of Neil’s books should be made available for free online. Like Neil said in the post announcing the decision, I’m surprised that people chose American Gods as well, even though it’s my second favorite (next to Neverwhere)–it’s a bit long to be read online! I had personally voted for Smoke and Mirrors… short stories are much easier to read online, and I would think that the short length would be more able to bring in new readers. But what’s done is done, and hopefully a number of people will be reading it! I’ll stick with  my hard copy…

Know your LOC?

It’s about 80 degrees in my class right now, and there’s no real point to trying to take notes when it’s all redundant from the 6 pages of notes I took on the readings…

As a result, I bring you the LOC shelving game, courtesy of RaveLibrarians on Ravelry.

Strangely addicting! I’ve been having trouble picking up books though… maybe it’s just my browser…
