This is what I do to take a break at the end of the day, when I’m tired. “I’m Reading a Book” was shared on my copyediting listserv today, and I thought it was a really cute send-up. It also led me to another interesting blog, “Librarians are Weird…but in a good way.” (That doesn’t describe any librarian I ever knew–and know now–but everyone’s got an opinion.)
Editors, proofreaders, writers, and librarians have at least one thing in common. We all have huge stacks of reading material we’re trying to get through. My stack is due next week, and I’ll be all right. It’s great to have actual work finally. I’m learning how to format an e-book.
