|This is my favorite part of the main bulletin board.|
George and Abraham certainly were not fashionistas. But I've done what I can.
Don't ask me why David Sedaris is thrown in with the rest of these things. I think one of our Library assistants suggested it, using the logic that Sedaris has that new book about squirrels and chipmunks, and Squirrel Day was on January 21st. But then I just left him up there and stuck him with the bunnies for Year of the Rabbit. I don't think he'd mind.

Many of the kids have definitely noticed the display, especially the "Boy + boy" part. Most reactions have been very positive, but the first day I put the display up one of the boys made a point to recoil and act freaked out, saying, "Boy plus boy? Girl plus girl? Wow, that's WEIRD..."
I said, "What's 'weird' about it?" and looked him right in the eye, waiting to see what he'd say. Another student standing nearby piped up, "Yeah, what's WEIRD about it?" which I thought was cool. The boy stammered, "Nothing! Nothing's weird about it. Nevermind..."
I thought to myself, That's right, bitch.

I don't think I could make it through a 10-book series now. I've read some fantasy/sci-fi series as an adult that stretched to 5 books, and that seems like an accomplishment. But these are smaller, teen-level books, so I guess it's different. When I was still in elementary school I'd read all the Narnia books, all the Prydain Chronicles, and all 14 original Oz books by L. Frank Baum.
So anyway, there's February. The end.
