You may recall from a Sunday Salon post a couple weeks ago that I had a job interview for a library assistant position. Well, guess what. . .
I GOT IT!!!!
I am SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW! I am going to be working in a LIBRARY and I FINALLY get to MOVE OUT OF MY PARENTS' HOUSE WHICH I HAVE BEEN WANTING TO DO EVER SINCE I GRADUATED TWO YEARS AGO!! Wheee!
The job begins Monday, August 30. I have family I can stay with until I find an apartment (moving to a new city, yay!) but I'm not sure how this is going to impact my reading and blogging. I'll be posting on the rest of Purgatorio within the next couple of days for Richard's Dante read-along. Paradiso is scheduled for September 3-5; plus there's In the American Grain coming up on August 27 for the Non-Structured Book Club. And I still have three more books for the Horrible Dare Challenge, which ends September 21. And I still need to read and review all 640 of Karen Tei Yamashita's I Hotel for The Front Table, although that review is due "at your leisure" so I think I can hold it off a bit longer. I may have to skip In the American Grain (*sniffle*) and I'll definitely be late for Paradiso. But we'll see how things work out.
(This library has over three million books so I don't think I have to worry about finding a copy of anything ever again!)
Now I know a lot of other book bloggers work in libraries too, either as librarians or in some other capacity. I can think of Frances and debnance off the top of my head but I know there's a ton more. Soooo - shout out! Who else is part of the club?
