Pardon Me, Your Image Is Showing
If you're ready for a way-fun new book, check out You Don't Look Like a Librarian: Shattering Stereotypes and Creating Positive New Images in the Internet Age by Ruth Kneale.
For years, Ruth has had a web site by the same name that's explored the stereotypes of librarians in pop culture. Now in the book, she's researched the effects of the persistent images and shares her analysis, survey results, and interviews.
This one promises not be as insightful as it is interesting. It won't be out till March, but you can pre-order now. I can't wait to get my copy!
