now to read about a difference engine

At the library yesterday a young woman came up to me while I was shelving and asked if I’d be able to go get some Asians to be quiet. I think she only specified their race so I’d easily be able to see who to shush, but still. Happily, shushing people isn’t my job so I could send her to the reference desk.

Tomorrow I’ve got another Reference/Reader’s Advisory test in the morning. This one is for Children’s and Young Adult positions. Good thing I spent the whole day searching Amazon’s “Customers who liked this also bought…” listings for Rowling, Blyton and Westerfeld books. I would love so much for Scott Westerfeld to show up on this test. He’s pretty new though, only the last few years, but his YA scifi stuff is supposed to be great.
