One of the many wonderful things about working in a library is having access to such a wide variety of books. This has greatly broadened my choice of reading material. In the past, I kept a list, mostly based on book reviews, and read almost exclusively from my List. I still have a list -- the constantly expanding, never-ending List of books I might one day read -- but I also grab books from displays and book carts and return bins, books whose titles and covers look interesting. Idiot Wind cau...

Instead COVID-19 hit and devastated the travel industry and Airbnb was forced to trim about 25% of its workforce and bench some of its more ambitious moonshot plans. As the world begins to ease travel restrictions, Airbnb is expected to eventually bounce back to its former glory, if it can execute well. It is up to these 19 Airbnb exec...

Enoch Powell’s inflammatory 1968 “Rivers of Blood” speech (denounced in the papers as a naked “appeal to racial hatred) energized the far-right National Front. Nazi punks and skinheads began violent campaigns in the mid-70s. A very hot summer in 1976 saw a riot at the Not...
