The Unshelved blog's annual Pimp Your Book Cart winner has been announced and top honors goes to Timberland High School for it's library book trolley reimagined as a UPS truck, complete with working lights. The slogan "What Can Brown Do For You" refers to the school librarian, Mr. Brown. More entries can be seen here. Anyone want to start a pool for how long it will take UPS to contact the high school about trademark infringement?
Also, from the Shelf Awareness newsletter, author Michael Perry's acceptance speech for an award he received from the Midwest Booksellers Association. He couldn't make the ceremony, so he made a video in which he muses about books and hypnotizes chickens. If you read this blog often enough, you know that is my exact demographic.
