I've just finished reading a nifty new book which I highly recommend. It is The Librarian's Book of Lists by George M. Eberhart, editor of the American Libraries Direct e-newsletter for the American Library Association. For the library history buff it includes "Key Dates In American Library History". For the librariana collector it includes George's "15 Favorite Library Postcards". For the bibliophilatelist it includes "Larry Nix's Top 10 Libraries on Postage Stamps". For the library administrator, it includes "Top 10 Ways to Make Sure Potential Applicants for Your Library Job are Turned Off by Your Ad". And many more fun and interesting lists (click on the book title to see them all). A great gift for library friends and workers.
