We Did It!


Complete Manuscript
Originally uploaded by sophiebiblio
Liz & I are sending in the manuscript for Pop Goes The Library: The Book this week. We know there's a lot of work ahead of us, still, but as Liz said earlier today, any work we do will just improve something that's already pretty darn good.

I'll write more about the process -- and the last week, in particular, which has been a marathon of finalizing -- later, and I'm sure Liz will, too.

In the meantime, I'd just like to thank Liz Burns for being such a great, supportive, and complementary co-author. This was a collaborative effort from start to finish, and I could never have survived this, much less completed it, without you, Smartie!

Many more thanks to come.

Happy 500th Post!

Blogger informs me that the post about my LJ article was the 500th post to Pop Goes the Library. Well, Thanksgiving has come a week early for me, in that case!

Boundless thanks go to (in the order they joined the Pop gang) Liz Burns, Melissa Rabey, John Klima, Susan Quinn, Carlie Webber, and Karen Corday for all their hard work, brilliant ideas, fine writing, and hardcore dedication to all things Pop. Your collective and individual voices make this blog better and more relevant by far than I could make it on my own, and you inspire me every time I read your posts. Thank you so, so much. You're the best!
