Other books

This month I read two other books: Bait and Switch by Barbara Ehrenriech - a sort of an accidental "year of" book. Ehrenreich spends the better part of a year trying to find a white collar job while she hires consultants to help with her image, resume and networking gurus to assist in the hunt. She learns what many of her cohorts do: it is a tough job market. After 9 months she gives up. Fortunately for her the exercise was purely academic.

The other book was You Don't Look Like a Librarian by Ruth Kneale. This is about busting tired librarian stereotypes in the 21st century. See the companion website at http://www.librarian-image.net/book/
