When Pirates Attack!

Just when I was starting to forget about the Pirate problems the United States encountered in Somalia, I read a news report saying that the same American ship that was attacked by Pirates in April, causing the hostage standoff, was attacked again off the coast of Somalia. Fortunately, the crew was able to repel the pirate attack and escape unharmed this time. Still, I find it strange to realize that Pirates are still stalking the oceans and terrorizing ships.

Who Comes Up with the Records?

If you were not aware that Nov. 12th was International Guinness World Records day, you are not alone! However, there are apparently many people who are aware of the day and plan in advance to break some record on that date. This year at least 26 new records were set in honor of Guinness World Record day, and some very bizarre records they are, too!

Seventy Five Item Limit – Wow!

Did you know that you can check out 75 items at one time! I know, it’s amazing! Sure there are a few restrictions, like you can only check out 10 DVDs at a time, but still, what a deal! But beware…this deal comes at a terrible price! Those who accept this pact will be cursed to concurrently keep track of all 75 items and their various due dates. It is a task only the trustworthy and steadfast can accomplish. The cost of failure can be numerous fines and blocks on one’s account! Consider yourself warned and partake if you dare!

Go Digital - I did!

Santa came early this year! He brought me a digital reader! I am now able to download up to 350 books on an electronic device that weighs no more than one pound! Our Overdrive Downloadable Collection is compatiable with many electronic devices. My digital library has been downloaded from our Harris County Public Library eBooks Collection and from the Google Books Public Domain section. It is truly an amazing technology! No, I will never give up my actual, physical books, but I will be happy to add an additional 350 free books to my personal home library!
