The rumors of my demise have been greatly exagerated!

Hello everyone,

Well, it has been some time hasn't it? Let's just say that life got interesting (family, teeth (yuck), etc.) for a few weeks and then school started and this semester is INTENSE (work wise). I think I have all my ducks in a row now and will be back in earnest next week.

Most of my postings will be to my other blog as I have been reading Advance Reading Copies of books that I have received (sadly, I'm way behind on them also). I plan on reading an ARC and then a 1001 book, so you should see something from me in this blog next week.

If anyone is interested the classes which are eating most of my time right now are:

Beginning Classification: Not just learning how to list books,but learning the language of classification, yikes! Actually, it's not that hard, just a little scary.

Information Literacy: This highly debated topic (just what is "literacy"?) is actually very interesting and the class delves into the topic of how to teach the art of searching and other basic computer/information tools to others.

Children's Literature, ages 5 to 8: I LOVE this class as it looks at the psychological and sociological issues surrounding children's lit. Very interesting.

I am going to be lazy and basically use the same post for both of my blogs. So you don't have to look in two places today. Any future posts will be blog specific. I hope all of my readers had a great Summer and are enjoying the coming Fall!
