I am of the age that I need reading glasses more often than I think I do. Yes, I am aware that it’s not this type of glasses. I think, though, that these glasses should be full. I am glad they are reading, though. They’ll learn something, maybe?
How many figures of speech can you find? I posted some of them below. Hopefully not spoilers.
Bird brain, in a nutshell, red herring, spill the beans, on a silver platter, heart on sleeve, ace up the sleeve, forget me knot, cat by the tail, cat got your tongue, running ragged, time flies, cards close to the best, ear worm, silver spoon, nailed it on the head, all eggs in a basket, chasing your shadow, kicked the bucket,
I love how the group of librarians in the above linked article entertain themselves. I have followed the author’s blog for a while now, and I find her very entertaining. I am not a librarian myself, but I am aware that they are a funny bunch. Judging by the stuff I see in the library, anyone working in the library needs to have a sense of humor. They make my day, a lot!
The above linked article tells about how one Tweet saved an independent bookstore. With Independent Bookstore Day coming up on April 25, this gives us something to think about. These bookstores are important, and we need to make sure they stay in business.
The above linked article tells about one of my favorite books growing up being made into a movie. The only thing that disappointed me about this article was that it doesn’t say when the movie will be made. I can’t wait!
The two men in the above linked article have found a way to make leather from cacti. It saves the chemicals that is used in regular leather, so it’s better for the environment.
I am curious, though, about what the article means by “fully processed” when it mentions the cactus cloth. Are there chemicals used here? And it also mentions “partially biodegradable.” That “partially” makes me wonder, too. I was hoping it would be clarified in the article, but it isn’t.
Meg Cabot has dusted off Princess Mia to get blog fodder in the above linked article. Princess Mia always has a lot to say, and I miss that the series is completed. I get a chance to catch up with her in the author’s blog, though. How fun!
