Monday Fun Day! (8/20/2012 Edition)

Happy Monday, librarians! Here are a couple fun things to get your week started:

- Grammar Girl is here to help you help your patrons get work! She wrote up a few very handy hints for résumé building here on the blog. Oh, and there's a signed books giveaway, too!

- Our giveaway is still open for those of you interested in taking a look at Uncharted Pages, our new Science Fiction and Fantasy site hosted by EarlyWord!

- In a readers' edition of Shelf Awareness last week there was a great review for Sabina Berman's debut, ME, WHO DOVE INTO THE HEART OF THE WORLD.

"Karen Nieto is a remarkable character, and Mexican playwright/poet Sabina Berman's rendering of her unusual voice and personality in ME, WHO DOVE INTO THE HEART OF THE WORLD is equally remarkable. [...]

"A beautifully written, emotionally affecting debut featuring a protagonist whose 'different abilities' include surprising and charming the reader."

- And finally, A LADY CYCLIST'S GUIDE TO KASHGAR may have come out back in May, but it's still bicycle season, so we're still thinking about it!
