I've decided I'm very susceptible to the power of random suggestions and interests. Case in point:
At the end of last week I was listening to the Evita soundtrack (the one with Madonna) on my MP3 player. "Ooo," I said to myself. "I want to read a biography of Eva Peron." So I went up to the stacks and found one.
Later that afternoon I was reading all about Daniel Radcliffe's racy promotion pictures for the play "Equus." Seeing as how this kid started out playing Harry Potter, I was intrigued by what would make him choose such a vastly different role. I did a quick search online and, lo and behold, my library had a copy of the play. Back to the stacks I went.
It's a good thing I work in a library and not a bookstore, otherwise my random need to know things would cost me more than just a pretty penny.
