A slide show via Ellen DeGeneres: Looky looky at this booky!.

A number of surprising titles including a book that I was very proud to work on while at Kane/Miller Book Publishers during the '90's; "The Gas We Pass, the Story of Farts" by Shinto Cho (my boss Sandy Miller did the research, I just proofread it).

As a supermodel and chat show host, we're used to seeing Tyra Banks looking stunning in glamorous outfits.

But in a new acting cameo in hit Disney show Shake It Up, the 38-year-old is unrecognisable as geeky librarian Ms Burke.

With her hair held together with pencils, oversized glasses, ill-advised eye shadow all over her lids and eyebrows, Tyra looks a far cry from her usual self.

Original these Disney folks, eh?

Library break-in suspect in South Dakota a real turkey

Library director Jeanette Chaney-Moodie tells the Black Hills Pioneer newspaper that she headed into work Sunday morning after authorities called her about the incident.

Plenty of Bs to go around...

Taxonomy upgrade extras

I have noticed the past few days how many LIS postings are by usernames which start with B (mine included :). And some of these are very good friends of mine :). An interesting pattern which I'm probably not the only one to notice. :)

Not sure if this qualifies as a "Friday Funnies" category or not, but it is worth a shot...
