I love my jeans. They are the pants I feel most comfortable and productive in. So in all fairness I may be a little bit biased. However, I think the public librarian dress code should include wearing jeans. I think jeans look more modern and less stuffy. I also think that they can look just as nice as “work pants” and sometimes nicer. I know some libraries allow jeans every day of the week, mine currently has a Friday only rule for jeans. The administration said they were taking comments on the matter though, and I am planning to throw my two cents in. Just wondered if anyone had opinions about librarians wearing jeans to work?

What’s worse is when it finally comes out the desire to read it has faded. I loved The Golden Compass and The Subtle Knife, but by the time the Amber Spyglass was released I didn’t care as much what happened.

On a crispday in early October as cameras rolled on Fox 2000’s film adaptation of his 2012 novel “The Fault in Our Stars,” a bestselling love story about two wry, cancer-stricken teenagers, the 36-year-old author was exerting a strong gravitational pull.
One minute, he was sitting with Fox honchos in director’s chairs, sharing his ideas for marketing the movie (“I can be in as many places as you can fly me in a single night”), the next, he was regaling the executives with the wild story of the preposterous ending he first wrote for the book (It involved a road trip to Mexico and a battle with narco-terrorists.) …
Love John Green!
