Neologism, we should say. Whatever you call it, the bookBot—a robotic book delivery system—is just one of many nifty features at North Carolina State University’s James B. Hunt Library of the future. Check it out here.
NCSU is my alma mater! Proud. Our graduating class’ gift was a monetary gift to the library; wisely spent, apparently!

My Career Counseling textbook for Spring Semester is wicked expensive everywhere, and chegg.com has the ebook version for rent for 180 days (until July!) for 61.70. Should I go for it? Good or bad things to say about Chegg?
The Post-Its remain from my Diagnosis and Treatment paper on Holden. #books (Taken with Instagram)
Still working on my Delicious Library catalog. (Currently at 495 books, 10 movies.) Enjoying the process—and the amusing things that occur when all items are simply alphabetized. Exhibit A!
More pictures from my 9th grade characterization project. Check out the close-up of the old man from The Tell-Tale Heart. What was going on in my 14-year-old brain that I came up with that? I don’t know whether to be proud or slightly alarmed.
Found my 9th grade English report on “Characters in Short Stories”: December 15, 1986, for Mr. John Montgomery at Quail Hollow Junior High. The illustrations slay me.
St. Jerome, 2nd half of the 15th century
Niccolò di Liberatore da Foligno, called l’Alunno

“St. Jerome is the patron saint of students and libraries and was one of the Four Fathers of the Western Church. The D’Arcy’s painting portrays Jerome with a long grey beard, wearing the brilliant red robe and hat of a cardinal. Though he is often depicted in this manner, Jerome never officially served as cardinal since the office did not exist in his time. His cardinal’s frock may allude to the appointment which he held under Pope Saint Damasus I.”
