Uh, maybe that didn't sound right. <BR/><BR/>And until we have fancy virtual paper like the stuff they read on the bus in MAJORITY REPORT, then books are still the best medium for readers, nothing C20th about it.<BR/><BR/>And which guitar was that again? I've ran the Sparkly Dan-oh and the recently retired CS-336 so far. Did I promise more? The Gold Top Love Rocket?<BR/><BR/>Trevor: Given the universal desire of librarians to clutter their workplaces with just as much stuff as they possibly can: I'd say it's inevitable.Markhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/17791352096505994671noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8210377.post-21566397131158907112008-02-12T08:04:00.000Z2008-02-12T08:04:00.000ZHey Mark,<br><br>I am breaking away from my AACR2 ...Hey Mark,<BR/><BR/>I am breaking away from my AACR2 cataloging homework to give you well-deserved props on the public library PSA. It's where I have read all of the Ex Machina TPBs as well as about half of the Fables TPBs. Libraries are so rad that even cataloging assignments can't destroy my fondness for them.<BR/><BR/>On a brief sidenote, I like imagining a library with large walls, no ladders, and bespectacled librarians (with elbow-patches on their blazers) crawling up the walls and hanging upside-down from the ceiling to shelve and retrieve books for customers..."libreckos" perhaps?Trevorhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/14599869888780825546noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8210377.post-29904276259389747332008-02-11T23:08:00.000Z2008-02-11T23:08:00.000ZI had the vague idea from somewhere that Gaiman wa...I had the vague idea from somewhere that Gaiman was quite pro library but - why not email him and mention it? If you get a library talk out of him you'll be laughing (happily)...<BR/>Anyone asks, it was my idea...<BR/>Agreed though that it is frustrating to think of people spending time staring at monitors to read a 'book' when they could just go to their local library and geta hold of a book... it's a bit like the previews on newsarama vs the real deal. Maybe I am still stuck in tactile 20th century mose though?<BR/>cheers<BR/>Adam<BR/>PS - I still want guitar pics btw!Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
