So I’m skimming through a library news email and see a headline that says:

Library offers cancer screenings

Wow, I thought, that’s a pretty amazing service to offer at a library. I paused to read the blurb about these cancer screenings to discover the headline actually said:

Library offers career counseling and resume reviews

Yup. I know.

Since I seem to be having difficulties reading today, I don’t have much hope for my ability to write. Instead, I will simply provide you with a few links I’ve been saving up for such an occasion.

First up, if Hannah Brencher from The World Needs More Love Letters doesn’t make you want to write a letter then frankly, you probably have something wrong with you (via). Because WordPress is stupid when it comes to embedding video unless it is from YouTube, you will have to click away to see the five-minute TED talk.

Have a giggle over 15 Undeniable Truths About Book Nerds. I love the graphic that says “You can’t buy happiness but you can buy books and that’s kind of the same thing.”

Finally, I so want this house. It used to be a public library, built in the 1940s. It was for sale in 1995 and a couple bought it and turned it into a house. Makes my dream of converting a barn into a library seem commonplace in comparison.
