The Sunday Post AKA What’s on my (Mostly Virtual) Nightstand 11-13-16

Sunday Post

One of the bloggy things that I have always enjoyed is the Black Friday Giveaway Hop. Black Friday, that strange day between Thanksgiving Day and the first holiday shopping weekend of the season, is kind of a weird day for blogging. Many people are off work and out of town with family. Some people still have to work. As a librarian, I’ve often had to work that day. For public libraries, it can be one of the busiest days of the year. High school students are wrapping up assignments before the end of the semester, and college students are home from school, often doing the same thing. It tends to be an “all hands on deck” kind of day.

Everyone is excited about getting another present, or a gift card to buy more presents, on Black Friday. I’m hosting the Black Friday Book Bonanza this year, with Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer as my co-host. Kimberly was one of the hosts the last two years, and I appreciate her help with getting my first blog hop off the ground.

In other news, I started a new job this week. I’m the solo librarian at TAPPI, the Technical Association for the Pulp and Paper Industry. I had been working there on contract, setting up the library. Now I get to help make the library a success. Wish me luck!

  1. It’s always exciting to start a new job, especially if you were involved in setting everything up. Best wishes to you. I imagine it will be good to have something to new to focus on.

    1. Thanks! It is exciting, and a bit scary. I have to make sure all the things I said were possible when I was a contractor turn out to actually BE possible now that I’m the one who’ll have to carry them out!

    1. Isn’t he adorable? Parajunkee did the design for the blog, including the bear. And thanks for the congrats. It is a cool job. The books are very different from the usual type of library, so I’m learning new stuff every day. Good luck with your job hunt!

  2. This is my first time visiting you, and I just have to say that I absolutely love your set up here. The colors everything just pop. I am so excited for the Black Friday Bonanza, I just signed up on Kim’s post.
