My New Library Card

Today was exciting because I joined the Toronto Public Library! One might wonder why I’d never done so before, but you see, I’ve always had the EJ Pratt Library at my disposal before. Pratt, however, does not contain such treasures as Let’s Knot: A Macrame Book, and so to Lillian H. Smith I went. I am learning macrame for research purposes, as any story about a 1970s housewife must inevitably include such crafting. So that was that. Any day in which I obtain a new library card is a fine day.

Also notable, books in the post! Jpod by Douglas Coupland and Every Day is Mother’s Day by Hilary Mantel were delivered, both thanks to birthday gift vouchers. I am too spoiled.

In Corporate Governance news, Ken Lay’s convenient death. Elsewhere, Canada Books. Like many of us, Zoe Williams has, and is not ashamed. Here on book trailers; incidentally this trailer is appalling. And an article on deciphering blurbs.

    I wonder what Leah Maclaren thought of the trailer. Do you think she’s a fan of the term “Sperm Bandit”?

    I think she invented it.
