For all the pwebber librarians/bibliophiles

Postby zeroguy » Fri Jun 22, 2007 3:43 pm

If memory serves me correctly, we have at least one board member who is a librarian or works in a library in some capacity. At the very least, we have numerous members who work with books or otherwise really like them.

So, I thought I'd just share today's xkcd with you all, if you haven't already seen it.

I read it and laughed my ass off. So true. So, so true. The fines part is true too.

Haha... twitch indeed. And late fees?! You'd better pay replacement fees for that mother!

Am I the only lit freak who doesn't mind things like spine breaking and dogearing?

I don't consider myself a lit freak, and even I am kinda bothered by them. I dogear myself sometimes, too, and it really annoys me later that I can't get the page to go back to the way it was (when I no longer need that page marked). I mean, I can get close, but there's always that little bend that you know a crease was there before. Grrr

you snooze, you lose
well I have snozzed and lost
I'm pushing through
I'll disregard the cost
I hear the bells
so fascinating and
I'll slug it out
I'm sick of waiting
and I can
hear the bells are
ringing joyful and triumphant

Once upon a time, I used to get an icky feeling whenever I bent a book wrong - creasing in the spine of the book irked me beyond belief.
Now...well, if you take one look at my room, you'll understand. I give up. LOL

I just spent a few hours going through all the comics on that site. (Took a while because I couldn't see all the mouseovers without going into Properties...)
