On Blogger Convos

– Even if you aren’t part of the library world, Phil the Webcrawler @ LibTech Soup always posts some awesome reference about libraries, bookstores, books, the world in library-land, etc.
– Stephen Karr also @ LibTech Soup does a great special which is all about Reference in Law Libraries
– I will follow just about any librarian-esque person, but I can definitely say that I was blown away by the awesome books Angela Patricia @ Star Dusty Fire posted in March (yea, I’m a tad behind!)
– Starting to care less-and-less about books being optioned into movies? So is Megan @ Book Brats, where she discusses her cynicism to YA book adaptations

    Your blog looks pretty good, but I just want to note that I was actually the author of Reference in Law Libraries.
