beda day #15: if i had known i’d be linked on slj

I’d have made sure my last post wasn’t a rant about Edward Cullen.


So today was pretty much, the most amazing day ever. Remember that HSM3/book related music video my roommate and I made? Well we commented about it on the School Library Journal’s Battle of the Books blog because we figured that they of all people would understand it, and would probably get a kick out of it. Then the next day we see…

THEY DID AN ENTIRE POST ON US! It was so exciting my roommate called me from work to tell me and I almost started jumping up and down.

People who would be able to appreciate the references in the video were watching it! We received so many nice comments on their site, on this blog, and on youtube that I want to share some of the ones that I’m going to have printed out and framed on my wall where I should be hanging my pretty Bachelor’s Degree.

    “Anytime I need a reminder as to why I love my job, I’m going to watch this!”
    “This was so clever! And such a huge amount of work–somebody give those young ladies a full scholarship to library school!”

About that one… I hope she’s serious. Because I’m a unemployed college graduate who could really use that. No joke.

    “Awesomeness Squared! You guys are terrific :-)”
    “Dang, you guys are officially celebrities among librarians!”


Other people who posted our video on their blogs include: WORD: The Official Blog Of READ Magazine and Educating Alice. THANK YOU GUYS!


And if that’d weren’t enough, later today I noticed…

I'm glad my first appearance on School Library Journal is of me sitting at my computer.

WE (or I, technically) AM ON THE SJL HOMEPAGE! OMG. MADE MY LIFE. Plus, they referred to us as the “Everdeen Sisters.” YES.

Now if only someone in the children’s book industry would just hire me. Please? Pretty please? Or send a nice letter to the HarperCollins childrens’ marketing department asking them to consider the application I sent in on Monday?

No worries about the Edward Cullen rant – lots of librarians are with you on that one, sista! Not to mention that there’s nothing we love more than someone with a strong opinion about books!
