Video Sunday: “You fill me with inertia.”
So today is the last day of National Library Week. In celebration, enjoy this delightful video from Common Craft for your average non-library literate layman.

Speaking of perky, Scholastic ups the ante with a professional announcer talking up their summer reading challenge. Not a bad idea. Offer kids the chance to be in a world record and watch your participation numbers skyrocket.
And for our off-topic video, this week this post alerted me to the existence of this movie scene from the film Bedazzled. This constitutes my new favorite thing.
