At Home He's a Tourist

He fills his head with culture/ He gives himself an ulcer.

I quit one of my book reviewing gigs. I want to spend more time on my own research projects, and in any case the assignments of late haven't been too interesting--amateur anti-religious screeds from minor publishers.

Anyone else going to Baltimore for ACRL?

Is Prometheus one of those "minor publishers"? And which gig are you talking about? Feel free to elaborate in off-blog e'mail --

I'd love to go to ACRL, but neither employer is willing to support it and I can't afford $500-$600 for registration.

Yes, so you probably know which gig I'm giving up. Not that I necessarily dislike anti-religious screeds--I'm a big fan of Nietzsche, after all--but these didn't have any originality or persuasiveness.

I will miss having the free books to sell on amazon, though.

Did you hear back from the law school?

Actually I didn't know you had more than one reviewing gig. How ironic that my first review will appear a month and a half from now. We'll see if they come back for more.

Never heard a peep from the law school. Naught but deathly silence from the hallowed halls of academe. Nor, for that matter, from the noisy foyers of the public libraries to which I've applied.

Congratulations--is the review appearing in the same magazine we're talking about or somewhere else? Let me know and I'll keep an eye out for it.
