New bookless public library

…opened in San Antonio last month.

It claims to offer lots of “traditional” library services (computer access, classes, children’s story time, study space) and an e-reader program where the collection of 10.000 e-titles can be accessed and checked out. E-readers can also be checked out.

I haven’t personally made the jump to the e-reader yet, but for those who like reading that way…this seems like an innovative (lower-cost?) way to provide vital services.



Awesome writing advice

Even in my very limited study of creative writing (a couple courses in college), I’ve realized what a difference knowing about the process can make when I’m reading a piece of literature. It’s a blessing and a curse (read: my next review).
