A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Hi Trouble: I love how you are always repping for the public library. Thanks. Also, might I recommend "Americanah" by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. It's super engaging and written with such brilliant confidence.

I'm reading the first book on Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars trilogy, if anyone is interested on a sci-fi suggestion
Avatar Tue. 4/1/14 9:53am Trouble:

full confession kwhitehead: my husband is a public librarian. BUT that said i adored my local library before and after i met/married him. i can't afford to buy all the books i read, and I don't want to own them all afterwards. best of all is discovering things by just browsing the stacks
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/1/14 9:54am Marcel M:

I'm the opposite, I always buy books and I keep them on my shelves and take them down and gaze at them and re read passages and caress them lovingly.
Avatar Tue. 4/1/14 9:55am doca:

I like how WFMU is fond of public libraries, there three or four listeners to whom I've already spoke who work on them

Man, I love that self deprecating line Edwyn Collins lays down at the end of this song "I'll never be man enough for you." Us librarian's can relate.
Avatar Tue. 4/1/14 10:07am bibi:

yes, librarian doesnt look like a very manly job, that's why being half time gardener helps.

@trouble totally with you on book ownership. Used to work in a bookshop years ago. Libraries rool.
Elias Canetti who wrote 'Auto da Fe' and won the Nobel Prize for Lit was a librarian. Just saying.

Cheers for public libraries. Here, it's nice in that the libraries in a four or five county area are connected online. You can order a book (or DVD, tape, etc.) that any of them have and in a couple days, it appears at your local library for pick-up.

I've been having a book purge lately. I've gone through the ones that have been sitting on my shelves for years and decided whetherI'd read them again or whether I even liked the author any more; your tastes change, after all. John irving didn't survive the cull; Anne Tyler did. I just reread A Patchwork Planet and it is pretty much perfect.

I've never had the experience of going to a library and thinking there weren't enough books and that I need one from some other library.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 4/1/14 10:32am sugarwolf:

I have a pretty good library system. There are a couple of libraries in the system that seem to carry everything, and I am extra lucky that my home library does not charge for ordering/holds. (Ok, a quarter the other libraries charge is a good deal, too.)

I see Sharon will be in studio a little later in the month. Will she be singing at all or just spinning records & talking?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 4/1/14 10:33am sugarwolf:

Some of the libraries I got too have used bookshops. I am sort of annoyed that one has a sign saying "Donations: No books older than 5 years! No records!" I mean, I get why, but booooo.

hi Trouble and listeners! i work at the Hoboken library, which i love!
and i know what you mean, WEIRD how Jersey City (and also Union City and West New York, both of which have FANTASTIC libraries themselves!) are not part of the network :(
perhaps you can contact the new Mayor of Jersey City? he seems to be wanting to make a lot of POSITIVE changes! :)

I have to donate some books soon. I have so many :(
Avatar Tue. 4/1/14 10:36am slugluv1313:

@ sugarwolf -- old books are TREASURES -- i have a bunch from the 1940s (some older, some newer) that belonged to my Mom -- she took such good care of them! numbered them too :)
i have to donate too -- does anyone know of places that DO take donations? oddly enough, a lot of libraries do NOT take donations!

Hi Trouble - thank you for such a wonderful, wonderful programme!!! This is the kind of radio I've always wanted! Recently discovered you by way of my oldest friend in Newcastle, I am in West Yorkshire. Just wanted to say how disappointed I was to hear that Cate Le Bon's 'People' are so useless. Like you I am a massive fan and would've loved to hear her on your show. Hard to fathom these folk sometimes. Always keep the books you love I say.Thanks again for the music you play and this fantastic station!!!

@slugluv You are most welcome. The Friends of the Library is interesting. They are not part of the library. They get some old semi damaged books from the actual city library, but most are from public donation. Old LPs, Vhs, tapes and CDs are also accepted and sold.

noscript takes a bit of finnicking and tech know-how..it blocks javascript from running.. so if you need to use something you need to grant permission.. can be annoying and ghostery is a tracking blocker, keeps trackers off you, but also requires a bit of finesse... unless you just block all (but can get in the way of google features and whatnot..)
