Candy Girl A Year in the Life of an Unlikely Stripper by Diablo Cody

I have a confession.
This was the first adult book I have read in a long time.
I even felt a little guilty that I spent time reading something that I wasn't going to recommend to a teen at work. Then I realized how retarded that was and realized I only spent 1 night (yes, it was that good. I haven't read a book that fast in awhile) and I was going to recommend it to my friends, and it was damn good!

I love her voice and wit, and I must admit, I think I have a crush on Diablo ;)

Seriously, I really enjoyed this little memoir and you might like it too. (But only if you don't blush easily, because it is a bit... um...dirty.)

Now, here are some songs to take your clothes off to.

Eva's Next Top Libarian


Ha! My co-worker and I had a 'photo shoot' for our Librarian Trading Cards today. I was fooling around with them in photoshop and I really like this one.

Teen Tech Week!

This is my post about TTW 08

First of all, I just finished BEIGE by Cecil Castellucci. I enjoyed this book, but by far, the thing I enjoyed most was how each chapter was the name of a punk song. There were some great songs! Don't believe me? Here, listen for yourself:




I found a very cool website called Project Playlist (www.playlist.com) You get to create your own playlist and post it anywhere just like I did above! I think I am going to start making book playlists. This seems like a great way to market books to teens.

Here are some photos of my TTW display. I think it turned out great and I wish the pictures captured it better.




I also had a CD Swap Party. Teens brought in a mixed CD, we made cool collaged covers for them while listening to music and discussing our favorite songs. We then swaped them and had all new music to bring home!
