Of Interest to me

A place to study, a place to pray  At one time, our campus had a meditation/prayer room in our Student Services area. I haven’t heard about it in over a year and am not sure if it still exists. We used to have a student worker who used an underutilized room here in the library to pray sometimes. I like the idea of students having a space on campus to practice whatever their spirituality might be…or even just a quiet place where they can sit and decompress and nothing else is expected in that space. We don’t have a lot of room in our library for this type of thing, but I’m considering what we might be able to offer.

Who’s left out of the conversation.  This was interesting because something related came up in another conversation I had with some other colleagues this week. I’ll be exploring this more along with my research on the Framework.

A Practical Guide to Improving Web Accessibility   We are working on redesigning our webpages, but are limited somewhat by the college’s platform. This guide will be helpful as we move forward. Lots of useful information to think about.

No One Can Copyright These 15 Things, and They May Surprise You  An interesting read about copyright and trademark around the world.

Time to share some links to book related posts around the web.

2018 Audie Awards – Time to use some of those Audible credits that have been piling up. Lincoln in the Bardo is on my TBR list. (to be heard?)  Among other titles that caught my eye are Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine, The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter, and House of Names.

After decades of dwarfs and elves, writers of color redefine fantasy – Different perspectives offer a broader and richer landscape in literature, no matter the genre. It’s good to see this expanding into Fantasy.

I’ve been listening to audiobooks more. Signed up for an account with Audible several months ago when I was going to the gym regularly. (Back before the appendectomy, throat surgery, and general life craziness.) Finally getting through the Game of Thrones books that way. Reading them in print killed me about halfway through the third book.

But I also take breaks from those with other books. I just finished Into the Light. Not a bad story, except it ended on a cliff hanger. Now I’ve got to move right into the next book, Away from the Dark. Reminder: don’t listen to the book if the husband is around because he’ll ask what smut I’m listening to now. Although there weren’t that many smutty parts. Just enough to make me blush.

Yes, I do still read actual paper books. Just finished reading The Killing WayIt was an interesting historical fiction mystery loosely based on Arthurian legend.

No Shelf Required has a free trial alert for Race Relations in America. Head over there for the login information. I’d recommend looking around at more than just that post. Good stuff there.

And because I love this song and so many of the movies featured in the compilation, here you go. Maybe it will make you grin, too.
