Though they began this festival after my graduation from the program, as an alumna of the UT Graduate School of Library & Information Science (now known as the iSchool), I still follow some of the quirkier events. The Edible Book Festival is one of them. What a way to eat your words! Some look truly appetizing. Others, just clever. Nonetheless, they make great browsing! Check it out!

Having not worked in a public library for almost 10 years, I am thankful that I don't have to deal with the not so fun aspects of library work (angry ranters, disgusting mess cleanup). However I've truly missed the serendipitous encounters with odd books. Two librarians in Michigan can help fill that void with their blog “Awful Library Books.” For anyone who thinks all books are sacrosanct, remember, sometimes you’ve just gotta toss the trash to make room for treasure. Yes, bad books do exist.
