Check out today's Word-of-the-Day, bibliopegy.
Do you agree with wordsmith Anu Garg about book readers? Do you have them at your library, (how many?) and are they popular with patrons?
The only new reader out that I know of is Sony's and its not really out yet, first deliveries should start the middle of next week. Whether a library will buy one... I dunno... there are possibly legitmate reasons to do so... I won't know for sure until I've seen one.

I think it would be a brilliant idea for students with a reading list to get together - they'd be able to walk into a library and get a copy of every single book on the list in one go, and then get on with the task in hand, instead of the usual effort it takes to get even a few books together. Is this maybe the future?
