Slow Reading: The Book

I was very happy to hear that my FIMS classmate, John Miedema, will be having a book coming out later this year.  I'm also proud to say I may have played some small role in making this happen. 

John has said (I think in a comment on this blog or perhaps in an e-mail to me?) that it was the point made in a list by former CLA President Wendy Newman that I reprinted on this blog (“3. In your first three years, become a ranking practitioner-expert in one great thing that becomes your “brand”. ) which inspired him to pursue his interest in the area of “Slow Reading”. 

Through his writing on the topic, he's gained attention from librarians all over the world, has presented at a conference, gave birth to a Wikipedia page on the topic and now, this book.

Congratulations John – I can't wait to get my copy!

    Thanks for the tip, Jason. As I mentioned back at my spot, I still think you should write “Jason's Unofficial Guide to Library School”, in the spirit of Will Ferguson's “I Was a Teenage Katimavictim”. You've got all the material.
    (Either that or “A Year in the Life of a Virtual Baby”!)

    That's a good idea. I'll have to send Rory a proposal! 🙂
