What do you think the best book title is? Regardless of the quality of the book what title do you find intriguing or interesting? Personally, I think the book Stranger in a Strange Land is one of the best book titles.

A friend sent me a funny PDF.
WARNING: If you own an SUV you might not find this funny. I drive a Honda Civic so I found it humorous.
Although I realize he high cost of gas for an SUV is made up for in safety.

I took this picture of one of the quotes on the side of the St. Louis Public Library. Do people agree or disagree with this quote? Or do you have a different take on the quote?

I am looking for some example of questions that are asked of librarians where the information is not available on the free Internet but the information is available in the library. I have some examples but mine all focus around the type of library I work in and I am hoping to get a broader range of examples.

I just sold a book to a person in New York. The mailing address was a business on Wall Street. I think people may find the title of the book to be ironic. Link to book title.

I have been using the website Paperbackswap.com to exchange books. The site has a neat mapping feature that show where your books are sent to and where the books you get come from. Take a look at the maps for the books I have sent and received. There is a clear east coast bias.

I sold a copy of Altered Carbon to an independent bookstore in New York City today. I find it kind of ironic that an independent bookstore in New York is buying from an Amazon seller in the midwest. Like everyone else he or she probably wants a cheaper copy of the book.

At Paperbackswap.com you can list your used books and if someone requests them you receive one credit for each book you ship to someone else. Each credit can be used to request a book that you want. You can also buy credits for roughly $2 a piece. Not a bad price to have a book brought right to your front door. There is no shipping charge so a book only cost a credit. You can get a credit for $2 or you can ship someone a book.
Here are some books at the site that I recommend:
