This Book is Overdue: A Librarian's Review

This Book Is Overdue!: How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All by Marilyn Johnson is and entertaining and informative book that will challenge any preconceived notions you might have on librarians and libraries today. Gone is the stereotypical shushing librarian that some expect, well I suppose some of still shush. The role of librarians and their libraries have changed quite drastically in the last decade. Johnson does a great job of telling fun narratives of what librarians really do for us, and how they do it.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies - Book Review

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith is just what it sounds like. A book about pride, prejudice and of course zombies. Grahame-Smith has taken the original Austin text and added and tweaked as needed to insert zombies into the story. The blending was well executed and seamlessly done. The style and language does not vary, and you can not necessarily tell where changes were made, aside from where there is talk of zombies of course. The work on the cover to keep it looking so like the paperback versions you might find in a bookstore, if you ignore the blood, was a nice touch.
