Librarians have always been cool in our book, but that opinion seems to be going mainstream. This afternoon, Flavorwire posted a fabulous list of "10 of the Coolest Librarians Alive." Right on! We just think the list needs to be a lot longer.
There's also been a lot of buzz around the May release of The World's Strongest Librarian, a memoir based on Salt Lake City librarian Josh Hanagarne's popular blog about books and weightlifting. Stay tuned because we'll be reviewing the book in our May issue.
What say you, readers? Who do you think needs to be added to the list, and what makes him or her cool in your book?
As another Wednesday at the office starts to wind down, we wanted to share this link to Flavorwire's gallery of delicious photos of famous writers hanging out at their homes.
How I would love to take a peek at what's on Mark Twain's desk (below)! Or eavesdrop on the conversation taking place on Virginia Woolf's porch. Or take in all of the amazing (and now priceless) art on the walls of Gertrude Stein's Paris apartment.
Which picture do you wish you could Photoshop yourself into?
