Musing Mondays #5

This is a weekly meme hosted by shouldbereading, which is where you can post your musings of the week. This can be describing a reading habit, what books you've bought, what books you want, what you're reading or any rant you can think of book related.



This week I am thinking about displays, more specifically library displays. My library is kind of limited to the use of a printer, some scissors and a laminator so you have to try and get as creative as possible with that. It would be quite nice to have a large selection of materials to work with, but it's never going to happen. So I am curious about the kinds of book displays your library do. Or what your favourite one is that you have seen so far? I have seen so many amazing and creative ones on the Internet, I wish our library could pull them off.

In our Teen section I recently have done a display for the books, it incorporates books and their TV or movie adaptions. It works quite well I think but for some reason our question mark on one of them was taken. Don't ask me why, I have no clue why you would want or need a large laminated question mark!



Blog Design

I have finally got around to changing my background. I didn't mind my old one but I thought it was too bright and plain and wasn't really me. I'm more satisfied with the one I have got but am still not happy. I will keep it for now but I know I need to start designing my own if I am going to be 100% satisfied. I just want one that's not really plain and brings across more of my personality I guess.

  6. I like the new background. We have a ton of printed off flyers and publisher posters. Nothing quite so creative.

    1. I only managed to find the time to do it because I was dying of a cold and no one at work wanted me on counter, infecting them with my sickness. Worked out for me though as I quite like how it turned out! Glad you like the new background!
