Library Day

Today is Library Day in our household. It's a very important day, as we ALWAYS have lots of books and videos that are DUE TODAY. Always.

And sure, we spend most of our time in the Youth Services Department, aka The Children's Section. But I make sure to get myself some light reading, and I'm making an effort to pick out a movie of the week for myself, now, too.

So, for this week, the picks are ... (drumroll please)

Wise Blood, by Flannery O'Connor. A recommendation from a fellow writer.
Pendragon, The Lost City of Faar by DJ MacHale (book 2 in a series, and yes it's for kids, but irresistible)
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by JK Rowling (another book 2 for those who've lost count)

And the movie of the week ... Spanglish. I've been waiting for this one to be in for weeks and I finally found it. Now let's hope I find the time to actually watch it!

So, anybody have any favorite books or movies that I MUST check out? Go ahead now ... make yourself heard ...

I used to work in a library at Nortel. We'd get people coming in looking for kids books. They didn't understand why a technical library wouldn't have childrens materials. Sadly most of these people were scientists making way more money than me.
