Let’s Knit!

March 22, 2014

Every few days Amazon sends me an email with suggestions for books that it thinks I might like. This last week the book fairies came up with a new genre they had not offered before.  Crafts.  I enjoy crafts, but frankly, I don’t have the time.

Pictured below is a book on knitting that is being released later this year.  When I first laid eyes on it, I thought maybe it was one of the books that I had already weeded.  I don’t know what breed of dog, knitter #1 is holding but it is adorable. Upon further investigation, I discovered they also have an Easter knitting book.  I know my friend @smellslikelibrary will want a copy of that one.

Inventory continues in my Library….Look what I found when I picked up an entire history set of books to clean and inventory them……

During the summer while I was weeding through the non-fiction section, I came across one of the possible reasons why every spring, the staff on campus sees a growing number of 14 – 17 year old girls sporting ‘tummies’ of various sizes.  Apparently no one was listening in Health.  Seems to me the answer is pretty much the same.
