My funny story for the day

I don't know about you, but I hate when I return to work after a few days off and find something on my desk.

When it's mail, I think, "Now what did they send now!" Because most of the time the branches
will send a book or books that they want to discard. They don't want it in their collection anymore, but feel that it is needed here.

I also receive stacks of books that the clerk has been stock piling on her desk. She waits for my off days to deposit the books on my desk. I guess she is afraid that I will complain. I would prefer that she give me the books as they are given to her, but I think it is a little too late to change habits. I get the books that fall in my selection area that have been damaged in some way.

Today's mail waiting for me: A galley copy of America Needs A Woman President by Brett Bevell. I am used to seeing a bound galley copy. This copy is loose pages held together by a paperclip. They have also advised that the book is available for pre-order on

Brett Bevell sent the copy himself, why am I not surprised!!!!!

I hate that too...esp when the deadline has already passed by the time I get back to work

Held together by paper clips? *dead* I know he could've sprung for a folder at Kinkos or something

That is exactly what I thought when I saw that stack of papers.
