A fun one from the Scholarly Kitchen's Phil Davis to celebrate April 1st. I've seen quite a few amusing bits out there this year but nothing that really slays me. Any suggestions for good ones that you've seen this year?
Anyways: Librarian Caught in Bed with Book
Readers of the UK Guardian and Post awoke Friday to the scandalous photo of a university librarian embracing a copy of "Eat, Pray, Love." Authorities are still investigating whether it was a personal copy.
The photo came to the attention of the press via WikiLeaks. Authorities in the UK and the US are working around the clock to discover the chain of custody that led to the publication of the photo.
"I'm horrified. Absolutely horrified," exclaimed her husband, an employee of ebrary, a purveyor of ebook content. "I absolutely had no idea it was going on. I feel cheated, betrayed."
And, yeah, I can be caught in bed with a book pretty well every night. Currently it's with The Crime on Cote des Neiges by David Montrose, a vintage noir mystery set in 1950s Montreal.
