On the twelfth day of Christmas, jennywren129 sent to me...
Twelve rainbows drumming
Eleven trees writing
Ten cats a-knitting
Nine books camping
Eight words a-reading
Seven bookstores a-spinning
Six linguistics a-painting
Five cre-e-e-eation myths
Four word games
Three flash girls
Two prairie lights
...and a religion in a fantasy.
Get your own Twelve Days:


When you are growing up, there are two institutional places that affect you most powerfully—the church, which belongs to God, and the public library, which belongs to you. The public library is a great equalizer. Keith Richards

Despite the meek, shush-shushing stereotype, librarians are largely a freedom-upholding, risk-taking group. In the name of the First Amendment and anti-censorship, they have championed the causes of provocative writers and spoken out against banned and challenged books. Writer Linton Weeks, Washington Post

I really didn't realize the librarians were, you know, such a dangerous group. ... You think they're just sitting at the desk, all quiet and everything. They're like plotting the revolution, man. I wouldn't mess with them.- Michael Moore

shhh, there's more! )
