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.

Dear Mr. Phillippe Bastille,
While your offer is certainly tempting, please understand that any correspondence to that particular email address (DARKEST WEB) will be auto-responded to with a virulent strain of digital anti-matter and many, many offers to accept a free cruise on the 70s hair metal Princess line. Just a word to the wise...

I missed the Lithub discussion. I wasn't familiar with it so I just looked it up. A big part of my job is selecting books for home bound library patrons. So this looks like it will be a great resource. Thanks Trouble!
Avatar Thu. 9/5/19 11:14am Trouble:

glad to help@ tim. are your patrons listening to books or reading them? or both maybe?
Avatar Thu. 9/5/19 11:18am βrian:

I imagine a short stack of volumes used as a pillow. (Listening to books.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/5/19 11:18am tim from champaign:

Both. I'd say a rough estimate is 85% print and 15% audio. I select based on their interests but a few do their own requesting especially if they listen to digital audio (rather than audio on cd).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/5/19 11:20am tim from champaign:

The other big part of my job is actually delivering the books directly to the patrons.

so you are sort of like the book mobile@ time. coool. have you read 'the uncommon reader' by alan bennet? you might love it! it's the imagined life of queen elizabeth as an avid reader. she gets her books from a bookmobile, becomes absorbed in reading and shirks her duties, it's hilarious.

I get it. Suppose I need to start paying more attention to which DJs are playing before tuning in.

  Thu. 9/5/19 11:31am mark williams:

@Gabe. It was a reggae song sung in the vein as they've been made over the past 25 years at least. Fitted well after Tenor Saw (was that pitched a tad fast, btw?). I mean, yeah... chill.
