So, up first we have A Publishing Industry Glossary that really gets into the nitty-gritty of what makes our industry tick... or tock, as the case may be.
A couple of my favorites were:
Book: a rectangular device for immortalizing the person whose name is inscribed on it. Not to be confused with "headstone."
Draft: A manuscript with still enough holes in it to let the wind blow through.
Haha... how appropriate.
Second, we have this hilarious post by Jen Campbell on Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops.
One of my faves here was:
Customer: Do you bother to arrange your books at all, or are they just plonked places?
Me: They're in alphabetical order...
And, last but not least. We have some rather threatening letters from children when the mayor considered cutting their library's bugget...er, budget.
All I can say is that I don't want to meet these 6-year-olds in a dark alley.
That's it. What funny things have you found on the internet this week? Anything to make us all giggle? :)
