Movie Monday

This one might be a little hard, because she is not in a library. So, that being the case I will give you a big hint. This is a flashback scene, where she has become a "spinster librarian".

Queen of Kings

Queen of Kings written by Maria Dahvana Headley is a fascinating book. I loved it! Everyone knows the story of Queen Cleopatra, but what if the story was far different from the one told? What if it involved magic, witches, vampires and all sorts of different evil creatures? What if Queen Cleopatra did not die? Interested yet? I was, and I was not disappointed. Once you start to read Queen of Kings, you will not be able to put it down. I'll give you just a little bit more of the story, after Cleopatra learns of Anthony's death, she seeks out an evil goddess. From there the story takes off on her desire to return to Anthony and seek out her revenge on her enemies. Definitely a book to check out, let us know what you think.

A Library Joke

A chicken walks into the library. It goes up to the circulation desk and says: "book, bok, bok, boook". The librarian hands the chicken a book. It tucks it under his wing and runs out. A while later, the chicken runs back in, throws the first book into the return bin and goes back to the librarian saying: "book, bok, bok, bok, boook". Again the librarian gives it a book, and the chicken runs out. The librarian shakes her head. Within a few minutes, the chicken is back, returns the book and starts all over again: "boook, book, bok bok boook". The librarian gives him yet a third book, but this time as the chicken is running out the door, she follows it. The chicken runs down the street, through the park and down to the riverbank. There, sitting on a lily pad is a big, green frog. The chicken holds up the book and shows it to the frog, saying: "Book, bok, bok, boook". The frog blinks, and croaks: "read-it, read-it, read-it".
