The baby books are for my niece, Hazel.
I also got a super cheap step for Frances. I attached a piece of carpet to the top, and she’s used it about fifty times already today, to get on and off the couch.
Between her crappy knees and the arthritis in her spine, she’s been really reluctant to get on the couch and the bed. I’ve been worrying about how to help her out, so I’m glad she’s willing (and eager!) to use her new step.
Sweep, sweeping, swept. The curving bits are only marginally better. Was she sleepwriting? Was her editor drunk?
I don’t read Agatha Christie often. The racism, sexism, and classism may be dismissable as typical for her social group at the time, but the older I get, the more appalling they become. But it was $1.99 in the Kindle
store, so I thought, “What the hell?”.
The hell, indeed. It has plenty of our old friends, sexism, racism, and classism, along with some new isms. It also contains some shockingly bad writing.
A couple of those items needed completely new records. All but a few had required at least some (and often a LOT) of editing. And that doesn’t include the stack of things that went to our NACO person to have authority work done.
If you’ve done national level enhance cataloging, you will understand that that’s a lot of books to chew through in one day.
Please file under G for “getting shit done.” I’m going home now to partake of an adult beverage.
