One of the most admirable and inventive and current library blogs around comes from the Seattle Public Library. Its Shelf Talk blog is a trove of ideas and informaiton that keeps coming and sets an example for library blogs everywhere. Recent trolling by our own tireless remote researcher, Andrea Delumeau, turned up some excellent summer reading tips for tweens, a nice item on Shakespeare authenticity questions, news of a new service for downloading audio books onto MP3 players at the Seattle Public Library (we’ll work on it), and a piece on book titles that overreach. Check the links above or go to the main Shelf Talk site.
Andrea Delumeau, by the way, bookmarks everything she finds here and Browser can barely keep up with it. Have a look.
