Thanks to everyone who told me their results from yesterday’s quiz. The conclusion seems to be that Google believes every librarian is secretly a giant squid. Make of that what you will. I did hear from some non-librarians who were cuttlefish and Komodo dragons, so apparently the answers do vary, and are not a complete Cthulhu takeover attempt. Yet.

Today is very festive. Happy World Book Day! Happy World Book Night, too! And Happy Talk Like Shakespeare Day! 

Related to World Book Night: How well do you know the opening lines of famous novels? (I haven’t taken this yet, but I will probably not score very high. I’m deficient in classic literature.)

Related to Shakespeare Day: What’s your Shakespearean slogan? Mine was “Screw your courage to the sticking place." I do like that line, and they make it sound lovely when telling you your results (“you are inspirational!”), but I’m a little concerned that it’s spoken by Lady Macbeth.

The New York Public Library’s renovation plans continue, not without controversy.

And lastly, here’s a very detailed infographic about why the workplace needs information managers!

My quote, "Brevity is the soul of wit."

I am a librarian, if that matters.
