It's the last Thursday of 2010, and so we look to the lists....

The Millions asked several writers to list their favorite books of the year, and they complied!

John Scalzi opened up a thread for book recommendations on his site, and there are over 200 responses. Between this page and the Millions list, you can't complain that there isn't anything to read.

The National Film Registry has added 25 movies to its historic list, including The Empire Strikes Back, The Exorcist, and Airplane! My childhood is slowly becoming historic. Eeep.

Back in 1964, the job of a corporate librarian was a bit different than it is today.

Prison libraries, meanwhile, haven't changed quite as much. But that's not a bad thing, either.

The British monarchy is putting up old photos on its Flickr account, slowly but surely. The recent engagement inspired them to upload older engagement pictures, which are all kinds of fun.

I just discovered the Swiss Army Librarian. Hooray! More cool librarians!

Tomorrow: links from others as we say goodbye to 2010!
