Fillion said he reads books everywhere, it reminded me of life after college
when I lived in NYC, well, Brooklyn then Queens,
and read all the time. The subway was the perfect place to read, to zone out
with all the white noise, and catch up on the classics or a trashy novel. Mostly
I remember studying for classes in library science and in history. These days I
read in the car, with my ears of course, and savor every minute of my road
time. Each new audio book is an adventure.
archivists, and information scientists promote reading and listening by example.
If we read, so will others. That’s what the READ posters from ALA are all about. Get caught reading, get
caught listening, or fiddling with your MP3 player. Start a reading group, chat
about your favorite author, and learn something new.
How does this
blog entry tie into the readings this week? Let me ask you “How many people ask
you for a reading suggestion?” They could go to the book reviews, AMAZON,
Barnes & Noble, or the library website. Most people ask their friends
first, just as Weigand’s mother asked her friends for car suggestions. In the
end, it doesn’t matter whether your book and movie suggestions come from
friends or the library, but that people immerse themselves in reading and
expand their knowledge.
