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.

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.

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!

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.
